Three people were killed and two others injured when a clash broke out between two groups over the ownership of a plot at Khathaldangi village in Iswarganj upazila in Mymensingh.

Locals took them to Iswarganj Sadar Hospital where doctors declared Jahirul dead.

“The others were referred to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH). Hasim and Azizul died while being taken there,” the OC said.

Khairul and Mazharul are being treated at MMCH.
