Two killed in bomb blast

Two people were killed in a bomb explosion at Sherpur upazila in Bogra last night.

The bomb went off inside a one-storey building beside Dhaka-Bogra highway in Mohipur village around 8:30pm, said police and locals.

One of the two men inside died on the spot. The other died at Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital in the district later.

Their identities could not be known immediately.

A CNG-run auto-rickshaw driver rented the building from its owner Mahabur Rahman, who lives in the capital, nearly five months ago. The driver went to his home in Naogaon a few days ago, said locals.

Hearing a loud bang of an explosion last night, the neighbours rushed to the scene and saw the two men lying on a pool of blood. Police were informed immediately.

Locals said they never saw the duo before.

Saifuzzaman Faruki, additional superintendent of police in Bogra, said they had cordoned off the building, and a bomb disposal team would visit the spot.
