A man was killed and 15 others were injured when two passenger launches collided on the Meghna River in Sonargaon upazila of Narayanganj on Saturday morning.

Poor visibility is likely to have played a key role in the collision between Dhaka-bound MV Manik-4 and Chandpur-bound MV Bogdadia-13.

The accident took place around 1am.

Inspector Md Mostafizur Rahman, in-charge of Kolagachia river police outpost, said a passenger of MV Manik-4 died on the spot.

Details about the victims could not be known immediately as the rescue drive was hampered due to dense fog, he said.
