Our Correspondent, Natore

At least two people were killed and 10 others injured as two groups of locals clashed over purchasing tickets at Ishwardi Bypass Rail Station in Natore yesterday.
The deceased were identified as Jibon Hossain, 22, son of Abdur Razzak and Jamat Ali, 28, son of Akbar Ali. Both of them hailed from Daharshoila village under Lalpur upazila of the district.
A brawl over buying tickets to Dhaka in front of one of the ticket-counters at the station turned deadly around 11:00am, leaving Jamat dead on the spot, Bashudev Banik, superintendent of police of Natore, said yesterday.
Jibon succumbed to his injuries half-an-hour later after he had been taken to Iswardi Upazila Health Complex.

The locals also clashed with the railway police when they went to the spot to calm the situation.
But police finally brought the situation under control, said the SP, adding that they were trying to arrest the criminals.
Additional police were deployed at the spot to avoid any untoward situation.
The bodies of the deceased were sent to the morgue of Natore Sadar Hospital for autopsy reports, added the police officer.
Amzad Ali, brother of one of the victims Jamat Ali, filed a case with Lalpur Police Station yesterday afternoon over the incident.
