Witnesses said Borhan defied the signal and tried to cross the level crossing around 2pm on Friday. 

Hamid, who was riding with Borhan, was killed on the spot when Dhaka-bound intercity Egaro Sindur Express hit the motorcycle.

Locals took Borhan to Katiadi Upazila Health Complex where doctors pronounced him dead.

Abdul Kayum, a witness, said there was no gateman at the level crossing.

Abdur Rahman Biswas, officer-in-charge (OC) of Kishoreganj railway police station, said the victims will be buried without autopsy at the request of their family members.
