The dead are- Hossan's son Ali Ahmed, 35, and Md Kalu's son Mujibur Rahman,32. Both of them were transport workers.
It is learned that a group of workers, including two victims, were working on the hill at 2am. At that time Ali Ahmed and Mujibur Rahman were buried under the ground. With the help of locals, the police removed the soil and recovered their bodies.
Ramu Upazila Nirbahi Officer Pranoy Chakma went to the spot on Wednesday morning. He confirmed the deaths of the two, saying a gang was cutting hills indiscriminately in the dark of night to fool the administration.
