The train dragged the microbus a short distance before stopping.
There were a total of 14 passengers riding the microbus from Hathazari to Khaiyachhara, according to Upazila Nirbahi Officer Minhazur Rahman.
Two of them were hurt, and eleven of them perished instantly. However, one of the passengers managed to escape the collision unharmed.
