Four tea garden workers killed in Sreemangal landslide

Four people have died in a landslide at a tea plantation in Sreemangal upazila of Moulvibazar district.

The incident occurred around 12 pm on Friday when a group of workers went to dig up soil from a hill at the Lakhaichara tea garden in order to refurbish their house, reports bdnews24.com citing the police.

But when they entered an opening in the hill, the soil collapsed and came crashing down on them, said Sreemangal Police Station chief Humayun Kabir.

Later, other workers pulled them out of the heap and took them to the Sreemangal Upazila Health Complex, where doctors declared them dead.
