Three members of a family died in the Islambagh neighbourhood of Dhaka after an overhead power cable broke down on their home.
The dead have been identified as Amena Begum, 55, her daughter-in-law Shirin Akter, 30, and Akter’s daughter Afreen.
Doctors said they were brought to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where the doctors declared them dead around 11:30am on Monday.
The power cable snapped round 10:30am amid heavy rains in the capital.
Locals rushed five of the family to hospital, where three were declared dead. The remaining two are being treated.
