Published 10:06 pm | February 22, 2019

An information desk was opened at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) to convey updated information about the victims of Chawkbazar fire.

Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief, district administration and Fire Service and Civil Defence jointly open the desk.

Unidentified bodies would be handed over after DNA matching through the desk.

The hotline to the information centre is 01737084914.

Authorities yesterday wrapped up the rescue campaign as the toll in the inferno in the old part of Dhaka stood at 68 people while it tore through densely packed buildings.

The rescue campaign was wrapped up as fire fighters after nearly 14 hours of hectic efforts dousing the blaze and retrieved the bodies and rescued scores from the scene as many of the victims were trapped inside the buildings.

The fire broke out on Wednesday night setting off a chain of explosions and a wall of flames at the city’s Chawkbazar area.
