The death toll from Narayanganj mosque explosion has risen to 29 as one more victim succumbed to his burn injuries at Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery early Thursday.
The deceased is Abdus Sattar. He breathed his last on Thursday around 9am, Somoy TV reports.
"Since everyone under treatment has tracheal burn, so the burn percentage doesn't matter. None of the victims can be declared out of danger," Dr Samanta Lal Sen told in a briefing on Wednesday.
Of the 37 burned patients in the blast, 29 have died while undergoing treatment so far. The remaining seven people are critical and undergoing treatment at ICU.
A gas leakage triggered the explosion and six air conditioners exploded ripping through the mosque during Isha prayer in Narayanganj's Fatullah on September 4 night.
Some 40 people suffered burn injuries as all the air conditioners of the mosque exploded during Esha prayers in Fatullah, Narayanganj on Friday night. One of the injured died at night.
