Update : 17 Apr 2014, 02:41 PM

The Tourism Ministry has issued an order asking the Tourism Corporation to find out if there was any negligence by the tourism department in the recent AUST students missing incident.

Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon issued the inquiry order on Thursday afternoon, three-day after four students of the Ahsanullah University of Science & Technology died and two went missing in the Bay of Bengal.

The minister asked the Tourism Corporation to inquire if there was any negligence by the tourism department that might be responsible for the demise of the students.

A general manager of the tourism corporation has already headed towards the spot for investigating the matter.

Earlier on April 14, two students of the AUST died while receiving treatment at a hospital in Cox’s Bazar after being rescued from the Bay in critical condition.

Four students also went missing in the same incident. Later, the bodies of two students were recovered on Wednesday morning.

The deceased were Shariar Islam Noman and Golam Rahim Bappi, as identified by their relatives. All four were final year students of the Computer Science and Engineering Department of AUST.

The two students still missing are Sabbir Hossain Sagoto and Istiaq Bin Mahmud alias Uday.
