Five members of a family were killed in a landslide at Villager Para in Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar district early Wednesday.

The deceased were identified as Abdus Shukkur, 16, Mohammad Zubair, 12, Abdur Rahim, 5, Kohinur Akter, 9 and Joynaba Akter, 7—all children of Syed Alam.

Hafizur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Teknaf Police Station, said a chunk of mud from a hill collapsed on the house of Syed Alam early in the morning, leaving five people dead.

The landslide occurred due to heavy downpour for the last several days.

However, the local administration is working to shift people living on the slope of hills to avoid such incident.

Earlier on Tuesday, five Rohingyas including children were killed in a landslide triggered by heavy downpour in Ukhiya upazila  of Cox’s Bazar.
