Bangladesh Bank fire, what are the symptoms?

Central Bank or Bangladesh Bank is the regulator of financial institutions and banking sector of the country. There have been several fires in this sensitive institution. A fire broke out in the central storeroom of the medical center on the fourth floor (located on the north-east side) of the bank on Monday afternoon. The fire was brought under control in about half an hour by four units of the fire service.

The medical center had four refrigerators and a large quantity of medicines. The fire service could not say how much damage was caused by the fire. It was not immediately clear where the fire started.

On the night of June 4, a terrible fire broke out in a BM container at Sitakunda in Chittagong. It exploded in 15 to 20 containers. At that time, each container turned into a powerful bomb. So far 49 people have died in this incident. More than two hundred people were injured.

Seven days after the incident, a fire broke out in the power car bogie of the Dhaka-Sylhet intercity Parabat Express train at Kamalganj in Moulvibazar on June 11. The fire was brought under control after 2 hours of efforts. Earlier in the day, a fire broke out in a Turag transport bus at Pragati Sarani in the capital. The bus was completely burnt.

Besides, a fire broke out in a ferry carrying passengers and vehicles from Shimulia Ghat in Louhjong upazila of Munshiganj around 5:15 am on June 11. The ferry named Rokeya was heading towards Majhikandi Ghat in Shariatpur.

Earlier on June 5, a fire broke out at a jute factory called Culin Industry in Pabna. A day later, on June 8, a fire broke out in a shoe factory at Basila in the capital’s Mohammadpur.

The next day (June 6) morning, a fire broke out in a shoe factory in Malum Mosque area of ​​Double Mooring Police Station in Chittagong. Six units of the fire service work to put out the fire. On June 9, a fire at a chips factory in the capital’s Postagola was brought under control by eight units of the fire service.

All of these fires occurred either in factories or in vehicles. Starting from the bus, train and ferry could not be left out. The question arises: are these fires one after the other just negligent accidents, or is there a link to sabotage?

Experts say there is no room for trivialities. They are expressing suspicion of sabotage. With these, the law enforcement agencies have to show efficiency. If there is any sign of sabotage, immediate action should be taken.

And police say they are keeping a close eye on such incidents. Detectives are working in the field. No one who is guilty will be spared.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has also expressed fears of sabotage in these recent incidents. Speaking on the occasion of the founding anniversary of the SSF on June 15, the Prime Minister said the government has information about the sabotage plan surrounding the inauguration of the Padma Bridge. He advised everyone to be careful for this.

The head of government said, “We are trying to create a sabotage so that we cannot hold the inauguration ceremony of the Padma bridge on June 25.” We have received information that those who opposed the construction of the Padma Bridge are trying to carry out such destructive activities. I don’t know what they will do. However, everyone must be careful about this. We have to keep an eye on important installations.

Former Inspector General of Police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Haque told Dhakatimes: And the security of every organization needs to be strengthened. Any deficiencies in firefighting should be addressed. Everyone should keep their eyes and ears open. ‘

In all the recent incidents, the police surveillance and intelligence surveillance is round the clock, said Assistant Inspector General (AIG, Media). Kamruzzaman. He told Dhakatimes that immediate action would be taken if any other matter came to light during the investigation of these incidents or if any information was found about the involvement of the vicious circle. We have all kinds of preparations so that no intrigue can do anything about the developmental activities of the government or the big event on June 25 (inauguration of the Padma Bridge).

Former Justice Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik thinks that one fire after another is not an accident. He is sure that there is sabotage in these incidents. There is a conspiracy behind this.

Justice Shamsuddin told Dhakatimes, “We know that many people do not like the inauguration of Padma Bridge.” They are trying not to open. The Sitakunda incident is believed to be the result of a conspiracy. It’s not a sporadic incident, it’s part of a larger conspiracy. Everyone knows that the opening of Padma Bridge will change the face of Bangladesh. The opposition cannot stand it. He said that these incidents must be investigated.

Former director of fire service Major (retd) AKM Shakil Newaz told Dhakatimes, “There are three types of fire in the country. In a natural or lightning strike. Others are negligence and hostility.

AKM Shakil Newaz urged those who are experienced in the recent fires to investigate the matter and said, “Then it will come out who is doing such thing with any motive.”
