More quarry workers killed in landslide
The death of quarry workers from landslides while extracting stones in Sylhet’s Jaflong and Companiganj areas has been rising alarmingly. Two workers were killed near Noyabosti area of Jaflong on the bank of the Piyain River around 8am on Thursday, when they were collecting stones from an abandoned ditch. Two others injured in the incident were taken to a local hospital. The dead are Akram Hossain, 35, and Lechhu Mia, 25, of Jalalabad in Sylhet, Goainghat OC Delwar Hossain confirmed to the Dhaka Tribune. Locals say stone collectors have been digging quarries on hillocks to collect stones defying legal prohibition, causing deaths to workers and destroying the environment.

In Companiganj area of Sylhet, at least nine quarry workers have been killed since December in mudslide.
