Face of Humanity: Ejazul Kaikobab of Hatiya in Noakhali district, a construction worker, sacrificed life to save trapped garment lady Shaheena Akhter deep inside tunnel. He was lowered into the tunnel and inched towards Shaheena to get her out through a hole he had drilled for hours. But her body would not slip through the tiny opening. Just then a fire broke out from a spark and it engulfed the tunnel. Kaikobad received serious burn injuries and succumbed. Shaheena could not be saved either.
Kaikobad had rescued alive at least 26 people, said rescuers. Kaikobad was buried at Banani graveyard in the capital with full state honours.
