The family had gone to the village home several days back on Eid holidays

Eid celebration turned into mourning and sorrow gripped a family at Harishena village in Gouranadi upazila, Barisal on Saturday after they lost their two children on the same day.

Milon Sardar, a resident of Dhaka and service holder, went to her village home several days ago along with his family to enjoy the Eid holidays.

But their happiness did not last long.

Milon’s daughters Afsana Akter, 14, and Jannat Akter, 8, drowned in a pond while bathing on Saturday.

Gouranadi police Sub-Inspector Sushanta Kumar said the family went to their village home several days back. From there, the two children went to their aunt Asma Begum’s house in the same village on Saturday.

Since afternoon, they had gone missing while bathing in a nearby pond. Soon after, locals started searching and recovered their bodies from the pond around 9pm, said the officer.
