Health Minister Dr Samanta Lal Sen said, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has sent money for the treatment of Bailey Road fire victims.

After visiting the burn victims at Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery on Saturday (2 March) he said, The prime minister called me in last night and said the government will bear all the expenses of these patients. We have a fund here, and she has also sent some money today. There are eleven injured patients in the burn institute now. Five of them will stay in the hospital as they are not out of danger yet. We will release the remaining six as they are relatively better.

Regarding the patients who are still in critical condition, he said their airways have been burned, and their condition is a bit complicated.

"We have kept them under observation and will decide what to do after a few more days," he added.

Dr Sen said a 17-member medical board had been formed to provide treatment to the injured.
