5 die in Kaptai Lake boat disaster

Five people were killed as two boats had a head-on collision in Kaptai Lake of Rangamat on Friday (February 14).

The identities of the dead could not be known immediately but it is believed that they were all employees of Pacific Jeans Garments in Chattogram.

The number of death is likely to increase, because many people are still missing.

Rangamati's Additional Superintendent of Police Sufi Ullah also confirmed the matter to media.

On the other hand, three people went missing when a boat sank- at Coal Depot area under in the Kaptai Chandraguna Union - in Karnaphuli River.
