The couple’s nine-year-old daughter Maisha suffered 45% burn injuries and five-year-old Aisha 42% burns. Both of them are in critical condition and currently undergoing treatment at SHNIBPS.

Meanwhile, Yasmin’s nephew Raihan, 25, the other individual injured in the fire, suffered 10-12% burns and was released after primary treatment.

Speaking to Dhaka Tribune on Friday, Yasmin’s relative Towhid said the family lived in a flat on the ground floor of a two-storey building.

In the room adjacent to the family’s residence, there was an easybike battery that was plugged in for charging the night before.

“We suspect the battery might have exploded and caused the fire,” he added.
