A mentally challenged man, restrained in iron chains, has been burnt to death in a slum fire at the city’s Chandgaon area.

The victim was identified as Rabiul Alam, 30.

The fire, originating around 10:45am on Sunday, gutted around 36 shanties.  

Jasim Uddin, deputy assistant director of the Chittagong Fire Service, said eight firefighting units rushed to the spot.
