At least five people were killed in separate road crashes in Noakhali and Habiganj on Saturday.


Four people were killed and two injured after a bus collided with a CNG run autorickshaw in the Eklashpur Bazar area of Begumganj upazila. 

The deceased were identified as Shakib Hossain, 22, Khadiza Begum, 45, Kamrun Nahar Poli, 22, and Mohammad Raju, 35.

Confirming the matter, Begumganj police station OC Feroz Alam Mollah said: "The bodies were sent to Noakhali General Hospital morgue for autopsy. The bus was impounded but the driver managed to flee the scene.”


A primary school student was killed when a bus hit a CNG-auto-rickshaw from behind on the Nabiganj-Sherpur road in the Bajakhashra gate area of Nabiganj upazila.

The deceased was identified as Tonmoy,10. The victim was a student of class two at Sonar Bangla School.

Nabiganj police station OC Ikbal Hossain said the auto rickshaw fell off the road after being hit by the bus. Tonmoy was severely injured and rushed to upazila health complex, where the on-duty doctor declared him dead. 

The bus was seized but the driver and helper managed to flee the scene, and efforts to arrest them are ongoing, the OC added.


Prominent singer Khurshid Alam, 75, was injured early Saturday, when a truck collided head-on with his private car on the Dhaka-Rangpur Highway in the Jhopgari area of Bogra’s Charmatha.

Two others injured in the accident were identified as Khokon and Swadhin.

Khurshid was initially admitted to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital (SZMCH), and was  later shifted to Green Life Medical College and Hospital in Dhaka via air ambulance in the afternoon, said the hospital’s neuro-medicine department chief Dr Asafuddoula.

Dr Sushanto Kumar, from the same department, told reporters that Khurshid had broken five teeth among other injuries on his face and head.

 “None of the injuries he received are life threatening,” added the physician.
