Five people, including a man and his daughter, were killed and four others injured in a collision among a truck, a CNG-run auto-rickshaw and a private car in Mirzapur Upazila of Tangail on Monday. 

The accident took place on the Gorai-Sakhipur road at Beltoil Bottala area of the upazila at around 10:30 am.

The deceased were identified as Sonamuddin, 60, of Kuratali village, his grandson Masraful, 10; Hridoy Hossain, 20, son of Khalilur Rahman of Beltoil village; Hafij Uddin, 60, and his daughter Renu Begum, 30. 

Each of the victims was the auto-rickshaw passenger. Three of the injured were taken to Kumudini Hospital. The condition of each of them is critical.
