Fuel tanks fall from sky!

Farmers were working peacefully on a farmland in Brahmanbaria today when a loud noise of something very heavy falling from the sky shattered the serenity and spread panic among them.

After a while, the same terrifying thud again; and none had any other option but to run away. 

This was the state of affairs when two reserve fuel tanks of a Bangladesh Air Force (BAF) aircraft fell down on a paddy field in Nabinagar upazila of Brahmanbaria, a local correspondent reports quoting police.

The two empty - 14 to 15 feet long - fuel tanks fell down from the aircraft in Nilnagar village around 11:00am but no one was injured in the incident.

On information, police recovered the tanks and brought it to the Nabinagar Police Station, Aslam Sikder, officer-in-charge of the police station said.

People could have died if two of the tanks dropped on any residence, said Abdur Rouf, chairman of Zinodpur union parishad.
