Two brothers have been killed after a speeding truck hit them in Khushtia’s Bheramara upazila.

The incident took place on the Kushtia-Pabna highway on Tuesday evening.

The deceased were identified as Nishan Ali, 30, and his younger brother Niloy, 12.

Bheramara police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Khandaker Shamim said the duo went with their engine-run trolley for a trial run, after fixing it. 

As they reached near Matia Filling Station, the truck hit the trolley from behind.

“Nishan died on spot, while Niloy succumbed to his injuries at the Kushtia General Hospital,” the OC said, adding that the truck was impounded.
