Bodies of two Bangladeshi victims of Grenfell Tower fire recovered
The bodies of Bangladesh-origin British citizens Hosna, 23, and her mother Razia Begum, 64, who died in the recent Grenfell Tower fire in London, have finally been recovered. The bodies were recovered two weeks after the blaze on June 14. Dental records helped identify the victims, said the relatives of the victim to Bangla Tribune while quoting investigation officials. However, the bodies of the other three members of Bangladeshi-British citizen Kamru Miah’s family are yet to be discovered. The dead body of Hosna was found beside the 17th floor elevator, while her mother’s body was found inside their flat on the same floor. The bodies of the victims will be buried after their janaza is held at the East London mosque. Hosna Begum, along with her parents and brothers, lived inside flat 144 on the 17th floor of Grenfell Tower. Her family owns Bengal Restaurant on Central Road. Her father Komru Miah, who was almost 90 years of age, was retired. The family originally hails from Khaishaura village in the sadar upazila of Moulvibazar district. Meanwhile, London Metropolitan Police spokesperson Fiona McCormack has confirmed that the Grenfell Tower death toll may not be known till the end of this year. The exact number of deaths caused may never be confirmed, said Scotland Yard.
