Two people have been killed after a motorbike plunged into a roadside pond in Kushtia’s Khoksha Upazila.

The incident took place on the Kushtia-Rajbari road at the Upazila’s Goshaidangi area around 12:30 am on Tuesday, said ABM Mehedi Masud, chief of Khoksha Police Station.

The dead have been identified as Zia, 40, and Md Hassan, 30. The critically injured Shafi, 40, was taken to a local hospital.

“The three used to run a joint business. They were travelling to Rajbari’s Pangsha Upazila from Kumarkhali’s Shelaidaha riding on a motorbike to enjoy a circus exhibition,” said OC Masud.

“The vehicle veered out of control and went off the road into the pond, leaving Zia dead on the spot.”

A fire service team recovered Hassan’s body from the pond.

The bodies were taken to Kushtia General Hospital’s morgue for autopsy.
