Cox’s Bazar landslide kills couple

A young man and his pregnant wife were killed in a landslide at Badshaghona in Cox's Bazar on Friday.

The accident took place around 3:30 am in Badshaghona-Khajamanzil area under Cox's Bazar Municipality.
The deceased were Hafez Anwar Hossain, 23, and his seven-month pregnant wife Maymuna Akter, 18. Anwar was the muezzin of a local mosque.

Locals said heavy rain started around 3 am. At that time, suddenly the hill near Anwar's house collapsed and fell on their house and buried the sleeping husband-wife. When Anwar's mother and sister who were in the other room got up and screamed, the surrounding people came forward. They removed the soil and rescued Anwar and his wife and quickly took them to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital where the emergency department doctor declared them dead.
Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital RMO Dr Ashikur Rahman said the two died before reaching the hospital.

Cox's Bazar Sadar Model Police Station officer-in-charge Rafiquzzaman confirmed it.
