A student of Rajshahi University has been killed inside the university campus after a truck hit their motorcycle.
The incident took place in front of the Habibur Rahman residential hall at RU on Tuesday (1 February) around 9pm.
The deceased student was identified as Mahmud Habib Himel, a 4th-year student of the Fine Arts faculty. The identities of two other riders on the bike are yet to be known, said RU Proctor Liaqat Ali.
According to the witnesses, a truck containing construction material collided with the victims' vehicle.

One of the three died on spot, he added.
