Sexagenarian man killed in Pabna road crash

A sexagenarian man was killed when a covered van ran over him at Ramnagar Ghat in Chatmohor upazila early Wednesday, reports UNB.

The deceased was identified as Rabban Ali, 65 of the village.

Shahidul Islam Tapu, a local UP member, said a group of buffalo lifters swooped on the house of one Ershad Ali around 4 am.

Sensing presence of the lifters, Ershad Ali called a number of people over phone and asked them to intercept the covered van while the lifters were trying to leave the scene.

Later, locals encircled the buffalo-laden pick-up van, but defying the obstacles, the covered-van ploughed through the crowd, leaving Rabban Ali killed on the spot.

On information, police recovered the body and sent it to local hospital morgue for autopsy, said Inspector Shariful Islam of Chatmohor Police Station.
