Md Nurul Islam, a student of Jagannath University (JnU) of the 13th batch (2018 Spring session) of the MBA (evening) program, passed away in the Bailey Road fire on Thursday night.

As soon as the news spread in the media, relatives and friends of the victims came to the spot and started searching. Then a student identity card from Jagannath University was found in the pocket of a body that was taken to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital. Then his friends rushed to the hospital and confirmed the dead body as the victim and tried to send it to his hometown.

Nurul Islam's ancestral home is in Babubazar of the capital Dhaka. He is the son of Md Muslim and Reshma Begum. He completed his graduation in finance and banking from Siddheshwari College.

Jagannath University Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Sadeka Halim and Treasurer Prof Dr Md Humayun Kabir Chowdhury expressed deep grief and wished the departed soul to rest in peace. Also, they expressed deep grief and sorrow over the loss of lives in the devastating fire at Green Cozy Cottages on Bailey Road.

At least 46 people were killed, and over 20 others sustained severe injuries by a devastating fire on Thursday night.

Firefighters rescued 70 people, including 42 in unconscious state, from the rooftop and different floors of the seven-storey Green Cozy Cottage.

The fire broke out at around 9:45pm.

Most of the people died as they jumped off the building or from burns or suffocation, said firefighters who brought the fire under control around 12:30am.

Fire officials say the blaze spread fast due to the presence of gas cylinders on several floors in the restaurant kitchens. People could not leave the building due to smoke in the staircase.
