Three people have died when a truck reportedly collided with their motorcycle in Dhaka's Khilgaon.

The victims were identified as Mehdi Hasan, 35, Joj Miah, 28, and Al Amin, 35, who were all friends. One of them was a businessman while the others were jobholders, according to the police.

The incident took place on the Khilgaon flyover in the wee hours of Saturday, said Farukul Alam, chief of Khilgaon Police Station.

The trio, all residents of Mugda's Uttarpara, were returning home on a motorcycle when a truck ploughed into the two-wheeler, flinging them onto the road where they lay for quite some time, according to Alam.

Police later took them to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where they were declared dead by doctors.

The bodies are in the DMCH morgue for autopsy, said Alam.
