Six workers died after inhaling toxic gas while cleaning a house’s septic tank in Akkelpur of Joypurhat on Wednesday morning. 

The deceased were identified as Sajal, Shihab, Mukul, Shahin, Pritom and Ganesh Chandra. All of them were residents of the upazila. 

“A worker entered the under-construction septic tank in the morning,” said Kiran Kumar Roy, officer-in-charge (OC) of Akkelpur Police Station.
