The deceased were identified as Ashraf Ali, 50, his wife Parul Khatun, 45, and their one-and-half-months old granddaughter Rezwan.
The accident occurred at Hathibanddha of Shibganj Upazila around 9 am when the Rangpur-bound bus of ‘Ahsan Paribahan’ from Dhaka had a head-on collision with the Bagura-bound auto-rickshaw.
The three were killed on the spot, said sub-inspector of Shibganj Police Station Mizan.
The three injured were taken to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College and Hospital, he said.
