Four members of a family, including two minor children, were killed after a speeding bus ran over them in Cumilla's Daudkandi upazila on Monday night.

They met the tragic end of their lives while returning home from the doctor's chamber. The accident happened at about 8pm on Monday on the Dhaka-Chattogram highway.

The deceased were Shahinur Akhter, her daughters Saima, 7, Raima, 2, and Shahinur's mother Dilruba Nesa, 65.
They were hit by a Dhaka-bound bus while crossing the road in Daudkandi upazila's Raypur area. They were on their way home from the doctor's chamber. Three of them died on the spot, while a child was then injured critically.

Locals rushed her to the Upazila Health Complex where the duty doctor declared her dead.

The bus driver fled the scene with the vehicle, said Additional Superintendent of Cumilla Police Shamsul Alam.

"Our drive to arrest the killer driver is underway," the police official added.
