A couple was killed after being hit by a bus after attending a wedding feast.

The accident occurred on the Dhaka-Tangail highway at the Gazipur's Kaliakair upazila bypass bus stand around 11:30pm on Sunday.

The deceased are Asif Mahmud Hridoy, 26, from Baroitoli village in Kaliakair upazila, and his wife Tanzim Bakshi, 21, from Boliadi Bakshibari in the same upazila.

Naojor Highway police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Shahadat Hossain confirmed the incident.

Quitting the deceased’s family members, the OC said the couple went to a relative's house in Kutipara, Mirzapur upazila of Tangail, on Sunday afternoon to attend a wedding feast. After enjoying the feast, they went out to celebrate Eid.

The couple was killed on the spot when a Tangail-bound Mahi Paribahan bus ran over them at the Kaliakair bypass area on their way home. They got married six months ago.

He further said: “Since there were no complaints, the bodies of the couple were handed over to their relatives without a post-mortem. Although the bus was seized, the driver managed to flee.”
