Two motorcyclists killed in Padma Bridge crash

Two young motorcyclists, both aged jus5 25, have been killed after sustaining severe injuries in the first known accident on the Padma Bridge on Sunday, the day the mega structure was open to public use.

The dead are Alamgir and Fazlu, who were brought to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where the doctors declared them dead on Sunday night.

Inspector Bachchu Mia, in-charge of the police camp at the hospital, said the duo appeared to be filming the trip during the accident that occurred in a place between pier No. 27 and 28 in the evening.

Both victims are from Dhaka’s Dohar-Nawabganj. Fazlu returned home from abroad some days ago. Alamgir was a motor mechanic.

Jihadul Kabir, an additional deputy inspector general of police, said Madaripur’s Shibchar police will investigate the incident after the filing of a case.

However, the government banned motorcycles from the bridge, citing the risks of accident.
