Minor girl dies as brick falls from under-construction building in city

A 6-year-old minor girl died after a brick fell on her from an eight-storey under-construction building in Dhaka’s Kathalbagan area on Sunday morning.

The deceased was identified as Jannat Akter Arifa.

Paritosh Chandra Swapan, officer-in-charge (OC) of Kalabagan Police Station, said that victim’s father went to work at the building along with his minor daughter. At one stage, a brick chip from the under-construction building fell on Arifa’s head when she was standing under the building, leaving her dead on the spot.

After the inquest, Arif's body was sent to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) morgue. However, no case has been registered in this regard yet, he said.
