Six people, including several suspected criminals, have been killed in a highway accident in Gazipur, police say. At least 11 others, including policemen, were also injured in Monday afternoon’s head-on collision on Dhaka-Gazipur Highway’s Porhabarhi.

It collided with a covered van at Porhabarhi, killing the six on the spot. Three policemen and two other accused have been sent to the Dhaka Medical College and Hospital in critical condition, Gazipur’s Civil Surgeon Ali Haider Khan said.
