At least ten people lost their lives after being struck by lightning across three districts in Bangladesh on Saturday.

Most of the people who died were farmworkers in the districts of Pabna, Mymensingh, and Chuadanga, according to Xinhua.

The Asian nation experiences lightning during this time of the year. Around 126 people have similarly lost their lives in the last two months, as per data compiled by a non-governmental organisation called 'Save the Society and Thunderstorm Awareness Forum'.
