4 killed in Ctg road accident

CHATTOGRAM: At least four people have been killed and five, including an inspector of Highway Police, hurt in Chattogram’s Mirsharai, where a collision took place close to one hour before midnight.

Wednesday’s accident occurred at 10:45pm at Dakshin Sonapahar of Zorarganj as a covered van crashed into a CNG-run auto-rickshaw. The identities of the deceased could not immediately be confirmed, Mohammad Khairul Alam, officer-in-charge of Zorarganj police station, told UNB.

There was a first crash involving a Chattogram-bound bus and a Dhaka-bound lorry. Although there were no casualties, the drivers and passengers of the vehicles got into a heated debate.

A team of Highway Police went to the spot to calm things down. Also, four locals went to the scene on an auto-rickshaw. At this time, a covered van rammed into them and ran over the Highway Police Inspector Monir Hossain, killing four of them on the spot.

Locals rushed Monir to the hospital in a critical condition. He was later shifted to Chittagong Medical College Hospital as his condition worsened, Khairul said.
