Electrocuted, 2 killed falling off train

Two passengers died and three injured as they fell off a commuter train after being electrocuted in Trishal upazila of Mymensingh last night.

One of the deceased was identified as Sobuj Mia, 17, a hawker, while the name of another passenger, aged 40, could not be known immediately, reports our Mymensingh correspondent.
