The incident occurred at the union’s Khastobok village early Monday.

Kakchira Union Parishad (UP) Chairman Alauddin Poltu confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

Quoting local sources, he said: “Delowar used to secure an areca palm tree near his home with an electrocuted wire to prevent theft. On early Monday, he went to the spot to repair the wire and got electrocuted.” 

“Russel also got electrocuted as he went to rescue him. Hearing Russel’s screams, Hamida went to the spot and attempted to rescue the two, but got electrocuted as well.”

Later, locals approached the scene and found the trio dead on the spot.
