HABIGANJ: Two Bangladeshi workers reportedly died from strangulation while being asleep in Lebanon.
They were residents of Govindpur village under Teghoria union of Habiganj Sadar upazila.
The deceased were--Abdullah Mia, 35, son of Siddique Ali of Govindpur village and Mozammel Mia, 22, son of Jharu Mia of the same village.
In search of livelihood, Abdullah went to Lebanon about two years ago and Mozammel one and half years ago.
As there was extreme cold in Lebanon, two of them went to sleep after lighting fire in their room on the night of February 11. Seeing the door locked late in the morning, people in the neighborhood knocked on the door. With no response from inside, people broke into the room and found them lying dead in bed, UP chairman Anu Miha told Banglanews quoting family sources.
Md. Masuk Ali, Officer-in-Charge of Habiganj Sadar Model Police Station, told Banglanews: "I have learned of the matter through the locals." The matter is being investigated.”
“The owner will send the bodies to Bangladesh,” Jahangir Alam, a close relative of the deceased, told Banglanews.
