Two minor siblings allegedly drowned in a lake in Alikadam Upazila of Bandarban District early Saturday.
The deceased were identified as Marufa Jannat, 7, and Mahfuza Jannat, 4, daughters of Mohammad Mahmudullah of Karbaripara area in the upazila.
The two siblings went missing on Friday afternoon after stepping out to fetch some water, said Abul Kalam, chairman of No 2 Choikhong Union Parishad (UP).
