2 minors killed in Jashore road crash

JASHORE: Two minors were crushed under the wheels of a tractor trolley in Sadar upazila of Jashore on Sunday.

The deceased were identified as Jahia Khatun, 4, and her cousin Abu Huraira, 2, of Jirat village of the upazila.

Jahia’s father Kamal Hossain was going to carry soil with the tractor trolley and when the vehicle started moving he did not notice the children who were behind the vehicle, said Tajul Islam, officer-in-charge of Jashore Kotwali Model police station.

Zahia’s father said, “The vehicle got stuck while moving backwards. When I went to check, I found the children crushed under the wheels.”

He could not hear their screams due the loud noise of the tractor, he said in a choked voice.

The bodies were handed over to the families without any post-mortem as they did not lodge any complaint, said the OC.
