A train has ploughed into four students on a motorbike, leaving three of them dead and the other “critically injured” at the level crossing in Kashiani Upazila of Gopalganj.

The accident occurred at Biswanathpur Level Crossing on Tuesday afternoon, said Kashiani police Sub-Inspector Ratan Boiragi.

The dead students are Md Yasin Sharif, 16, a SSC candidate of Joynagar High School in Kashiani, and Md Raihan Ruhin, 15, and Al Amin Khandaker, 15, both 10th graders.

The rescuers sent Md Sohan, 15, the “critically injured” grade-10 student, to the Faridpur Medical College Hospital, police said. 

The four were on their way to Byaspur on the motorcycle after watching the annual sports event of their school, SI Boiragi said.

A Rajbari-bound local train from Bhatiapara hit the motorcycle at the level crossing.

The residents of the area took them to the Kashiani Upazila Health Complex where the doctor declared three dead.
