An unidentified woman has been killed after a bus ran over her near Gazipur’s Konabarhi area.

Angry garment workers from nearby factories blocked the Dhaka-Tangail highway for about half an hour.

Konabarhi Highway polices SI Saiful Islam said the accident occurred around 7am Tuesday near the Tushka Garments in Konabarhi.

The body of the woman, about 30 years old, is yet to be identified. Police suspects she was a garment worker in a local factory.

After the accident, angry garment workers hit the streets and vandalised vehicles.

They blocked the road and traffic was disrupted for 30 minutes.

Later police brought the situation under control, said SI Islam.
