Nilphamari: At least 10 people were killed and seven other injured as a bus collided head-on with a pickup van on the Saidpur bypass road of Dhaka-Dinajpur highway in Nilphamari district on Sunday night.

The identities of the deceased could not be known immediately.

The Dhaka-bound night coach from Nilphamari collided head-on with a Nilphamari-bound pickup van at Dhalagachh intersection of the bypass road around 10:15pm, said Dr Sirajul Islam, upazila health and family planning officer.

All the injured people were taken to Saidpur 100-bed hospital, he added.

The ill-fated pickup van was carrying a group of youths who were returning home from a picnic spot called Swapnapuri in neighbouring Dinajpur district.
