CHITTAGONG, March 20, 2017 (BSS)-Four people including two college
students suffered injuries as some bricks fell on a tin-shed house from an eight-storey under-construction building at Dhopa Para in Kazir Dewri area under Kotwali thana in the city today.

The injured were identified as Tagar Bala, 70, her grandsons -- Arup Das, 26, an MBA student of Government City College, Shahadeb Das, 23, a final year student of Civil Engineering of city's Polytechnic Institute -- and Tagar Bala's brother Ovi Das, 20.

They were admitted to Chittagong Medical College Hospital. The condition of Tagar Bala is stated to be critical.
