Dhaka: A 10-year-old boy who worked in a textiles factory in Bangladesh has died after the other workers inserted a high- pressure nozzle into his rectum and activated it.
Sagar Barman worked with his father at Jobaida Textiles and spinning miles in Rupgang in Dhaka. Barman’s father found him lying on the floor with blotted stomach. He was rushed to the hospital where he later died.
Police told local media the boy had a high-pressure nozzle forced into his bottom before he was filled with air.
