2 die from heat stroke amid heat wave

Staff Reporter:

Two people died from heat stroke in Chuadanga and Pabna districts respectively on Saturday as the country continues to experience a heat wave for the past few days, forcing the authorities concerned to close all schools, madrasas and colleges till April 27.
The deceased were identified as Jakir Hossain, 33, son of Amir Hossain of Thakurpur village under Da-murhuda upazila of Chuadanga and Sukumar Das, 60, a resident of Shalgaria Jakir Moar in Pabna dis-trict town.
Amir Hossain said his son Jakir went to a cropland to irrigate in the village in the morning. After around one hour, they came to know that Jakir fell sick due to the heat.
Later, he breathed his last on the way to Damurhuda Upazila Health Complex, his father said.
The health complex’s Resident Medical Officer D Mohibullah said they heard that a farmer died from the heat stroke while working in the cropland.
Pabna General Hospital’s on-duty physician Dr Zahedul Islam said Sukumar suddenly fell sick amid the scorching heat while taking tea at a tea stall in the city’s Rupkotha Moar at noon.
Later, locals rushed him to the hospital where physicians declared him dead upon arrival, he said.
On the other hand, Chuadanga recorded the season’s highest temperature at 42.3 degree Celsius on Sat-urday afternoon.
Tahmina Nasrin, weather observer at Chuadanga First Class Meteorological Observatory, said after a continuous intense heat wave, the temperature has increased further and a very severe heat wave has started.
The heat wave is going on because there is no rain. If it rains, the temperature will drop considerably, she said, adding that there is no rain forecast for now. However, if there is a storm, it may rain with it.
Moreover, the season’s highest 41.6 degree Celsius temperature was recorded in Pabna’s Ishwardi on Saturday afternoon.
