Two masons have died while working in a septic tank of a toilet in the Jugiya Kadamtala area of Ward No. 14 in Kushtia Sadar Upazila.
The incident took place at Amirul Islam’s house in the area on Friday morning.
The deceased were identified as Sadiq Mallik, a resident of Talbaria’s West Gobindapur village of Mirpur upazila and Manik Ali, a resident of Mandalpara area of Haripur UP of the Sadar upazila. Both of them worked as masons in the upazila.
According to locals, mason Manik went to work on the septic tank of the new building of Amirul Islam, son of Mahatab Uddin in the Jugiya Kadamtala area on Friday morning. Not getting Manik’s response for a while, Sadiq entered the septic tank and lifted Manik’s body for the tank. At that time Sadiq also fell to the ground and died.
Members of the fire service later arrived at the scene. Kushtia Model Police recovered the bodies from the spot.
Kushtia Model Police Station OC Mohammad Shawkat Kabir said Manik and Sadiq died while working in a septic tank at a house in the Kadamtala area. Their bodies were recovered and sent to Kushtia General Hospital for autopsy.
