Two people, including a member of RAB-4, were killed when a microbus hit a Rab vehicle on Dhaka-Mymensingh highway in Gazipur on Wednesday.

The deceased were identified as Mohammad Khairul Islam, a member of RAB-4 and motor mechanic Liton Mia, said Rab SI Md Rakib.

Three injured RAB-4 members- senior warrant officer Md. Shariful Islam, soldier Atiq, Corporal Pradeep Kumar, and motor mechanic Rifat,20, were airlifted to Dhaka CMH from Sreepur Hospital in Gazipur in a special helicopter, said Maona Highway police camp in-charge Kamar Hossain.

SI Rakib said a microbus of RAB-4 went to Bhabanipur area of Gazipur Sadar Upazila and suddenly it stopped running due to a mechanical fault on the way from Dhaka to Sreepur. Later, local mechanics, Rifat and Liton were called to repair it.

At one stage, another speeding microbus hit the RAB-4 van from behind, leaving four RAB members and two mechanics were seriously injured.

Later, they were taken to Al Hera Medical Center at Mauna Chowrastar in Sreepur Upazila for treatment where a doctor declared Khairul Islam dead.
