Three passengers of a three-wheeler were killed in a road accident last night on Dhaka-Bonpara highway in Sirajganj's Tarash upazila.
The deceased were identified as Monirul Islam Shaha (36), Shakil Miah (20) and Ashraful Islam (30), reports our Pabna correspondent quoting Noor Nabi Pradhan, officer-in-charge (OC) of Hatikumrul Highway Police Station.
The deceased -- residents of Natore's Gurudaspur upazila -- were oil traders and were returning home aboard a three-wheeler from Sirajganj along with several gallons of oil, the OC said.
Around 9pm a speeding vehicle hit them, leaving the trio dead on spot.
Highway police rushed to the spot and recovered the bodies. The vehicle, however, managed to flee from the scene, the OC added.
Further details regarding the incident could not be known immediately.
