Police are presumed to have died in the collision. The dead were two motorcycle riders. The motorcycle was lying next to the body.
The deceased were Touhid Uddin Ahmed (26) and Md. Salauddin (25). They are residents of the Karimpur area of the Chaumuhuni union of Noakhali.
Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) of Dohazari Highway Police Station Adam Ali, who went to the spot, confirmed the matter to the media. He said police rushed to the spot after receiving information that two bodies were lying on the highway at around 1.30 pm. The bodies of the two were lying on the road. The motorcycle was lying on the side of the road nearby. The front part of it is twisted.
He said that after talking to his relatives, he came to know that the two had gone to Cox’s Bazar from Noakhali. They were returning to Noakhali on a motorcycle. No eyewitness to the accident was found.
However, looking at the motorcycles and the bodies, our idea is that they were killed when the motorcycle collided with a moving vehicle in the middle of the night. The bodies of the two deceased have been handed over to Sataknia police station, the official said.
