Photo: ReutersIt was not possible to see anything as there was a dark cloud of smoke everywhere. Within 10 minutes the smoke spread throughout the building making it difficult for people to escape.Exhausted and terrified, Hasina Parvin, credit control manager of Aamra Networks Limited, housed on the 17th floor of the 22-storey Faruk Rupayan (FR) Tower in the capital’s Kamal Ataturk Avenue, said this while narrating her harrowing experience of Thursday’s devastating fire incident that left 25 people dead.The 39-year-old mother of two daughters escaped the horrific fire that broke out on the 6th floor of the building around 12:45pm.”We were at a departmental meeting at that time. Suddenly, we saw through the window huge black smokes bellowing up and noticed a fire at our building,” said she.”Instantly, I along with other colleagues got out of the office and rushed to the staircase. We heard people screaming and saw smoke filling up the staircase,” she added.Firefighters on ladders work to extinguish a blaze in an office building in Dhaka on 28 March 2019.

But a little later, it was impossible to stay there because of the smoke,” she went on saying.Parvin and some of her colleagues ran towards the rooftop as it was impossible to get down through the stairs due to the huge dark smoke. After reaching the rooftop, they jumped to the adjacent building, Ahmed Tower, and got down to the ground.Parvin narrated she saw some people jumping off the building breaking open the windowpanes. “Too late to make it to the rooftop for an easier escape, they tried to escape through the windows of the building and some of them fell down.”Fire breaks out at FR Tower in Banani in the capital on Thursdya afternoon.

But after that, the staircase become too hazy for people to make it through,” she said.Parvin said there were 65 employees on their floor but four of those could not manage to escape. “Later, they were rescued by firefighters around 3:45pm and taken to Apollo Hospitals.”She, however, said there was no emergency fire exit in the 22-storey building that houses dozens of offices. “I’ve been working in this building for around seven years and had the same experience during an earthquake several years back…many panicked people were injured while getting down,” she added.Sushanta Roy, now undergoing treatment at Apollo Hospitals, told UNB, “Thanks to the Almighty that I’m alive. When I got trapped on the 17th floor, I thought it’s over, I wouldn’t survive. We were unable to breathe properly due to suffocation and black smoke.””We broke opened the glass wall and screamed for help. Once, I thought I would jump off the building, but saw several people fell down while climbing down holding cables,” he said.A helicopter carries water to drop on a burning office building as Bangladeshi firefighters on ladders work to extinguish the blaze in Dhaka on 28 March 2019.

After investigation, it was found they summited an improper design without RAJUK’s approval. The building was constructed violating the (original) design.”Firefighters carry a casualty next to a burning office building in Dhaka on 28 March 2019.

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility CHINA DIVE: The Shanghai Composite ended down 6.5 percent at 4,620.27 in another episode of the volatility that has punctuated the market during a 12-month period in which it has gained 127 percent. Stock market commentator Hexun attributed the fall to several factors including brokerages tightening margin lending, selling by speculators after the index neared 5,000 and a Chinese sovereign wealth fund selling shares in two state banks. Despite a deepening economic slowdown, the index has gained 40 percent in the past three months alone. Chinese leaders have recently tried to tap brakes on the stock market boom, fearing it could run out of control and disrupt economic reform plans.ASIA’S DAY: Japan’s Nikkei 225 rose 0.4 percent to 20,551.46; the index is up nearly 10 percent in the past three months as exporter stocks benefit from a cheap yen. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 edged down 0.2 percent to 5,713.10 while South Korea’s Kospi gained 0.2 percent to 2,110.89. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng took its cue from Shanghai and lost 2.2 percent to 27,454.31. Southeast Asian markets fell while Taiwan and New Zealand rose.GREECE FACTOR: European markets got a brief boost this week after Greece said it expected to reach a deal to get more bailout loans in time for it to make a key debt repayment on June 5. Its creditors, however, were quick to temper expectations, causing markets to ease back down in Europe. It is unclear what market impact could result from Greece not repaying its debt on June 5, but the uncertainty has kept investors on edge. TOKYO (AP) — Chinese shares dived Thursday after big gains in the past three months and other global stock markets were mostly lower as a deadline neared for cash-starved Greece to make a debt payment.KEEPING SCORE: Shares suffered a dramatic plunge in China with the Shanghai Composite dropping more than 6 percent. In Europe, France’s CAC 40 slipped 0.5 percent to 5,155.42 and Germany’s DAX lost 0.4 percent to 11,725.46. Britain’s FTSE 100 inched up 0.2 percent to 7,046.80. U.S. shares were set to drift lower, with Dow and S&P 500 futures shedding 0.1 percent.

Check your body, save your life Amid fanfare, European planemaker Airbus flew its E-fan plane from Lydd, England, to the French port of Calais on Friday morning. The plane operates exclusively on batteries, and since there’s no oil or water, the 20-foot long, 1300-pound jet releases zero emissions.About 12 hours before Airbus’ Channel flight, French pilot Hugues Duval took his two-engine, one-seat Cricri plane from Calais to Dover and back.Because he lacked authorization to take off from Calais, another fuel-driven plane towed his 100-kilogram (220-pound) Cricri for the start of the trip, he told The Associated Press. Then he flew autonomously back to Calais and landed safely.He said he reached a speed of 150 kilometers (90 miles) an hour on his 52-kilometer (31-mile) journey.Duval told The AP that his successful flight was a “relief” and an “important moment” after years of fine-tuning the plane and flying it over land.Airbus officials gathered in Calais to celebrate the landing of the E-fan would not comment on Duval’s trip.The E-fan took its maiden voyage in March 2014, and has taken off 100 times since its latest flight at the Paris Air Show last month. Airbus aims to put the two-seater on the market in 2017, targeting sales at training facilities for entry-level pilots. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility “It’s a great victory, but it’s also a start. For us it’s an adventure that permits us” to imagine commercial flight on electric or hybrid planes, said pilot Didier Esteyne, who flew the Airbus plane Friday. “It’s really the beginning of great innovations.”The choice of flight path was not coincidental: In 1909, French pilot Louis Bleriot was the first person to fly a plane across the English Channel.Safety was of secondary priority for Bleriot — he was concentrated on winning 1,000 pounds in prize money from the British Daily Mail newspaper by performing the feat first.For Airbus’ flight Friday, security professionals were out in full force, with helicopters and rescue speed boats trailing the E-fan.Electric flight is a nascent sector of the aviation industry, so safety regulations are still in development. Airbus and the French civil aviation authorities worked together to create a test flight program for the jets.While the E-fan only seats two for now, the aircraft manufacturer is aiming bigger down the line. Chief Technical Officer Jean Botti told The Associated Press at the Paris Air Show last month, “Our objective here is to make a hybrid-electric hundred seater for the future,” calling it an ambition Airbus could realize in the next 15 years. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Top Stories CALAIS, France (AP) — Airbus flew its electric plane across the English Channel for the first time Friday — hours after an independent French pilot made a similar voyage, beating the aeronautics giant in this symbolically important step toward making electronic flight viable in the long term.Several companies in different countries are developing electric planes, in hopes of offering a fuel-free flight alternative for the future — and the battle to perform world “firsts” in electric planes is heating up as the technology becomes more durable. Slovenian company Pipistrel was also hoping to send its electric plane across the Channel this week. But engine-maker Siemens blocked the trip at the last minute, saying the motor didn’t have authorization to fly over water, Pipistrel general manager Ivo Boscarol told The AP.Boscarol said he felt his plane was ready for the journey and estimated that about 10 other electric planes currently in development are also capable of making the flight. He said he hopes to continue working with Siemens in the future to develop the plane.He compared this week’s flights to those of Bleriot 106 years ago, saying “the Channel, in aviation, has a special place. It’s kind of religious.”___Charlton reported from Paris.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.

abhishek manu singhvibarrackpore-s25p15Dinesh Trivedielection commission First Published: April 27, 2019, 6:34 PM IST New Delhi: Opposition parties on Saturday approached the Election Commission alleging display of party name only under the BJP symbol on EVMs during a mock poll in West Bengal’s Barrackpore constituency, but the poll panel has maintained that the same insignia was used for the party in 2014 Lok Sabha polls.A delegation of opposition parties comprising senior Congress leaders Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Ahmed Patel and Trinamool Congress’ Dinesh Trivedi and Derek O’Brien met Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora over the issue and demanded that either all such EVMs be removed from the remaining phases of elections or names of other parties be added too. The EVMs display the party symbols, name of the candidates and their photographs. “On EVMs, letters ‘BJP’ are visible under the party’s symbol. No other party’s name is there. Either remove all machines which mention BJP clearly or all other parties’ name should be added in all such machines. Till then the use of these machines has to be totally stopped in the elections,” Singhvi told the reporters after meeting the CEC.Former Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi, who is also a sitting MP from Barrackpore, said this was a “clear fraud on the people” and an attempt to “hack the EVMs” . He also showed purported photographs of the EVM where the party symbol of Lotus included the words BJP .”Yesterday the commissioning of EVMs was going on in my constituency. We saw the name of BJP clearly written under its Lotus symbol. My party people pointed this out and we requested the returning officer to stop the commissioning. “We approached the state election body also. But the CEO could not take a decision saying elections are already going on,” he said.”To our utter surprise, before the EC could hear our part of the argument, they had already given the judgement that we are carrying on with the process and there is nothing wrong,” Trivedi said.Meanwhile, the Election Commission, in a letter to the chief electoral officer of West Bengal, said that it has received a complaint regarding use of party’s name in ballot and that the same symbol was used by the BJP in the 2014 elections.”There is nothing to suggest that it reflects the name of the party,” the EC letter said. BJP’s Arjun Singh is contesting from the Barrackpore constituency, while Trivedi is the candidate for Trinamool Congress.
Follow @News18Movies for more Ananya Panday on Saturday dismissed the accusations that she lied about getting selected in a prestigious US university. The Student of the Year 2 actor had recently said in an interview that she chose not to go to college despite being accepted for a journalism program as she wanted to focus on her acting career.A woman, who goes by the name of “anieeepeee” on Instagram, then came forward disputing the actor’s statement and said she never applied for any foreign university. The woman claimed to be Ananya’s schoolmate. Setting the record straight, the 20-year-old actor posted a photo of her with the university letters on Instagram and revealed that she had successfully applied for a major in Communication at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism but postponed her admission twice as she was shooting for her debut film. “As I’ve stated earlier, I was accepted by Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at USC for a major in Communication in the Spring 2018 semester. But since I was shooting for my first film and the release date later got pushed, I had to request for a deferral (which means postponing my admission) twice – first to Fall 2018 and later to Fall 2019, both of which they gracefully agreed to do,” Ananya wrote in the caption.”In my case, I could only defer my admission two times so I will not be attending university (for now), since I’ve decided to pursue my career in acting,” she added.The actor also said the rumours that she lied about getting selected in a foreign university were “getting out of hand” and have been “unfair” to her and her family. “As for the people who have been trying to pull me down with these accusations, I would like to send you all lots of love, peace and positivity. And would also like to say that even though they’re claiming to be my classmates (nameless and faceless) – I’m sure they aren’t because I’ve grown up with the people I went to school with and they would never do something like that,” Ananya said.”It’s never okay to bully anyone – creating fake conversations, stories and screenshots is very dangerous and can seriously damage people’s lives. So please be loving, positive and kind,” she added. ananya pandayananya panday collegeananya panday college nameananya panday foreign university First Published: June 9, 2019, 9:00 AM IST
