Two men were run over by a speeding bus when they fell off their bike after ramming a pillar of an under-construction flyover at the busy Pangsha College junction on the Rajbari-Kushtia regional highway on Thursday, reports UNB.
The deceased were identified as Muktar Hossain, 38, son of late Abul Hossain of the Housing Area of Kushtia Sadar upazila, and Rakib Uddin, 40, son of late Khaleq Sheikh of South State of the upazila.
The accident occurred on Thursday when Rakib and Muktar were on their way to Dhaka from Kushtia.
Eye-witnesses said that the bike crashed into the under-construction flyover at a high speed. Both the riders lost balance and fell from the two-wheeler. Unfortunately, they came under the wheels of the bus and died.
Sub-inspector Atiqul of Pangsha Highway Police Station said the duo died on the spot. “Their bodies have been handed over to their family members,” he said.
