Khulna: Two minor siblings were killed when a sunshade of an under-construction building collapsed on them at Deyana in Daulatpur upazila on Tuesday.
The deceased were identified as Shipon Sheikh, 11, and his sister Samia Khatun, 2, children of Badal Sheikh of the village, reports the UNB.
Mostaque Ahmed, officer-in-charge of Daulatpur Police Station, said an extended portion of the sunshade of Badal’s one-storey under-construction building fell on the two siblings while they were playing sitting under it, leaving them dead on the spot.
The sunshade collapsed as it was built without using iron rods, he said, adding that the bodies were sent to Khulna Medical College Hospital morgue for autopsy.
