Two sweepers died after inhaling toxic gas while working in a sewerage line in the capital’s Mugda area.

The deceased were identified as Dila Mia, 55, and Nuru Hawlader, 60.

Police sources said three day labourers – including the two deceased men, entered the manhole in a road near Maniknagar Model School in Mugda around 3pm.

When the two men failed to respond to calls after getting into the manhole, they were pulled out with the help of local residents and rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) around 4pm where duty doctors declared them dead, co-worker Babul said.

They were residents of Maniknagar Wasa Road.

Doctors suspected they had died after inhaling toxic gas. Mugda police Officer-in-Charge Omar Faruk said the workers fell unconscious while working in the sewer.

He was rushed to the DMCH where duty doctors declared him dead around 4:20pm, according to DMCH police outpost In-Charge Mozammel Haque.

In another incident, two construction workers were killed when a human haulier plunged into a roadside ditch in the Shyampur area of the capital around 7am.
