A woman and her daughter were killed while her husband and another daughter injured as a speeding truck ran them over at Battoli in Sadar upazila on Monday morning.
The deceased were identified as Aduri Begum, 25, wife of Shahidul Islam, and her daughter Shampa, 6, residents of Dhopaipur village in the upazila.
Quoting witnesses, Sohrawardy Hossain, officer-in-charge of Sadar Police Station, said the family was waiting for a bus to return home after attending the funeral of Aduri’s mother who died on Sunday.

The injured were first taken to Naogaon Sadar Hospital from where Shahidul was sent to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital for better treatment.
