Two passengers were killed and 30 others injured when two buses crashed head-on in the district’s Sirajdikhan upazilla on Friday morning.
Sirajdikhan Police Station Sub Inspector Mohammad Hanif said one of the buses belonged to DM Paribahan and was headed for Dhaka, and the other, belonging to Ilish Paribahan, was a Mawa-bound one.
“The two deceased were crushed in the accident that took place around 7:00am,” said the SI.
The deceased could not be identified immediately.
The other injured passengers were admitted to local hospitals.
The SI said the accident caused a traffic hold-up on the road for more than an hour. Traffic later resumed after the two buses were towed out of the road.
