One person has died and two others, including a policeman, have gone missing after a boat capsized in Jamuna river in Sirajganj's Kazipur upazila.

The incident occurred in a remote char area, near Mansur Nagar union of the upazila, on Wednesday noon. 

The deceased was identified as Renu begum, 55, hailing from Sarishabari upazila of Jamalpur.

Renu's husband Zabed is also missing after the incident. However, the identity of the other missing one is yet to be ascertained.

Confirming the matter, Kazipur Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Md Zahid Hasan Siddique said: "We have heard that the boat has capsized due to the river’s strong torrent, leaving three people missing.  It was carrying people who were attending a wedding ceremony in the Sariakandi area of Bogra.

"On information, members of police and Fire Service started a search and rescue operation. As of now, a woman's body has been recovered from the water. The search for others is underway," he added.

Inspector SM Masudur Rahman, of Kazipur Jamuna Char's Natuapara police outpost, said: "Upon receiving information, we have sent a police team, led by Sub-Inspector (SI) Ripon, Ahmed, to the spot."
