The court has fixed October 13 for submitting the investigation report over the fire incident at Banani’s FR Tower.

The report was set to be submitted on Wednesday as DB Police Inspector Jalal Uddin, the investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the report. Later, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate  Debdas Chandra fixed the new date for submitting the report.

The accused — BNP leader Tasvirul Islam, owner of the extended portion of the building, Engineer SMHI Farooq, the landowner of the building, and Liaquat Ali Khan alias Mukul, chairman of Rupayan Group —  out on bail.

On March 28 this year — a devastating fire broke out in Banani’s FR Tower — killed 26 people and injured 73 people. Besides, fireman Sohail Rana also died in the incident. In that case, SI Milton Dutt, in-charge of the Banani police outpost, filed a case on March 30.

Liaquat Ali Khan alias Mukul, chairman of Rupayan Group along with the two accused, was made main accused in the case. Anonymous has also been charged in the case.
