17 travellers returning home to Rangpur for Eid killed in accident

Identities of the victims could not be known immediately.

The victims were returning home from Dhaka and Gazipur to celebrate this Eid with their family members, Rezadul Karim, officer in charge of Pirganj Police Station, told our Dinajpur correspondent.

Around 35 people, mostly low earning people and day labourers, got on the truck which was fully loaded with cement sacks, the police official said.

The truck skidded off the road after the driver lost his control over steering on Dhaka-Rangpur highway in Kalabagan area around 4:30am, leaving 12 people dead on the spot and 13 others injured, he said.

Five of the injured died at Pirganj Upazila Health Complex after locals took them to the hospital.

Others injured were later shifted to Rangpur Medical College Hospital for better treatment.
