Two Bangladeshis of the same family were killed in a road accident on their way back to Al Gachim after Umrah in Medina in Saudi Arabia.
The accident took place on Saturday (March 25) at around 8 pm Bangladesh time.
The deceased are Sagar Jomaddar (23), son of Motahar Jomaddar of Hosnabad Union of Betagi Upazila of Barguna and his brother Md. Mozammel Hossain (45).
Sagar Jomaddar's elder brother Ujjal Jomaddar confirmed the matter on Sunday (March 26) morning.
According to family sources, Sagar and his brother-in-law Mozammel are expatriates from Saudi Arabia. They used to work in a place called Unayza in Algashim, Saudi Arabia. Last Thursday they went to Makkah to perform Umrah Hajj. On their way back to work after performing Umrah Hajj on Saturday, the car they were carrying lost control and crashed into a rocky hill. They died on the spot.
Meanwhile, the news of the death of two persons of the same family has cast a shadow of grief on the entire area including that family.
Ujjal Jomaddar, elder brother of deceased Sagar, said, I will not get them back, at least I can give them the graves at home. So I am requesting the government to bring back the bodies of my brother and uncle.
In this regard, Betagi Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Suhrid Salehin said, I have heard the news of the death of two expatriates in a road accident.
All measures will be taken from the Bangladesh Embassy in Saudi Arabia to bring the bodies of the deceased to Bangladesh, the UNO said.
