At least two people were killed and two others sustained injuries when two passenger buses collided on the capital's Bijoy Sarani road yesterday morning.
The deceased bus passengers are Aklima Begum, 35, a garment worker, and Abdus Salam Selim, 55, a bus staff.
The injured are Abul Kalam, 20, a bakery supplier, and a 55-year-old vegetable vendor whose identity could not be confirmed.
A witness of the accident said two buses -- one from the Mirpur end and other from the Novo Theatre -- crashed into each other at Biman Crossing of Bijoy Sarani road.
The two buses rolled over and dashed a vegetable-laden van parked along a footpath near Crescent Lake Road.
Passers-by rushed to the spot and found Kalam and the vegetable vendor injured. They were admitted to Pangu Hospital.
Kalam was purchasing vegetable at the time of the accident, the witness added.
Aklima and Salam were found lying dead on the spot. They were passengers of Shikor Paribahan, which was coming from Mirpur end of the road.
No one of the inter-district bus service Hanif Paribahan that was coming from Novo Theatre end was injured in the accident, said Abdul Momen, officer-in-charge of Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station.
Relatives of Aklima said she was going to Demra from Mirpur-11 to meet her husband there.
