The bodies of two Bangladeshi citizens, who were killed in a road accident in Kolkata on Saturday, have been brought back to Bangladesh.
Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Abul Bashar Miha, officer-in-charge of Benapole Port police station, said: "The bodies of Kazi Md Mainul Alam and Farhana Islam Tania arrived in Bangladesh through Benapole check-post around 9am on Sunday upon completion of all formalities."
Mainul, son of Md Khalilur Rahman of Vutiyargati village in Jhenaidah municipality area, was a senior official at Grameenphone while Tania, daughter of Md Amirul Islam of Dhaka’s Lalmatia, was a senior officer at City Bank.
Both the deceased were cousins, and had gone to neighbouring India on August 14 for treatment, where they met the tragic incident.
Two private cars collided head-on in Shakespeare Sarani of Kolkata around 1:50am on August 17. At one stage, one of the cars hit the duo while they were waiting beside the road due to heavy rainfall, leaving them critically injured.
Later, they were taken to The Institute of Post-Graduate Medical Education and Research and Seth Sukhlal Karnani Memorial Hospital (locally called as PG Hospital), where doctors pronounced them dead.
