In Chittagong, three people, including a man and his daughter, were killed in two separate road accidents.

The deceased was identified as Shah Ebadul Haque, 65. He lived in a flat on an apartment building beside the Ansar and VDP headquarters.

His nephew Shah Md Golamur Rahman told reporters that Ebadul was critically injured when a motorcycle ran him over, while he was trying to cross the street near his home to go to the local mosque for Maghrib prayers.

Ebadul, a father of two from Bhola, was first rushed to Khidmah Hospital, and then shifted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
