A pregnant woman was killed and her 60-year-old father critically injured after a wall collapsed on them in the Masdar area of Narayanganj’s Fatullah on Friday.
Police say the boundary wall of an adjacent plot tumbled down in the evening, killing Moyna Begum, 25, on the spot.

Her father Jinnat Ali was seriously injured and admitted to the National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation for treatment, Fatullah Model police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Rakibuzzaman said.
Moyna’s husband Ripon Mia said his two-and-a-half months’ pregnant wife and father-in-law were returning home from a relative’s house in Masdar on a rickshaw when the boundary wall crashed down on them.
“However, the rickshaw puller managed to escape,” he added.
Locals rushed the duo to Narayanganj’s Victoria General Hospital where Moyna was declared dead upon arrival.
“On information, police went to the spot. The incident is being investigated,” OC Rakibuzzaman said.
