At least one man and a young child have been killed, in separate incidents of mud walls collapsing in Kushtia and Gazipur districts.
A man in Kushtia's Mirpur upazila was crushed to death after a mud wall of his house collapsed on him on Saturday morning.
Rupchand Mallik, 52, of Chithalia village, was asleep in his room when the wall suddenly collapsed on him, said Chithalia Union Parishad Chairman Gias Uddin Pistol.
Family members and neighbours hurriedly dug through the debris and rescued Rupchand, but he was already severely injured and died as he was being taken to the hospital.
The mud walls of the house were weakened due to the incessant rainfall over the last two days, the UP chairman added.
Meanwhile, in Gazipur, a two-year-old boy died when a mud house collapsed in the early hours of Saturday.
The child, Jahid, was sleeping along with his mother and aunt at his grandfather's house in the Pubail area under Gazipur City Corporation, when the mud wall of an abandoned house adjacent to their building crushed their house around 3am.
Jahid died on the spot and two others were injured, confirmed Hosne Ara Siddika, a local councillor of the city corporation.
