Three killed as bus collides with 3-wheelers

Three people were killed and seven others injured when a bus collided head-on with a three-wheeler in Lalmonirhat Sadar last night.

The identity of the dead, who were all passengers of the three-wheeler, could not immediately be known. The injured were also passengers of the same vehicle.

All the injured were rushed to Kurigram Sadar Hospital.

Police seized the bus but its  driver and other staffers fled, the  OC said.
