A policewoman died in a road crash in Bhola’s Borhanuddin upazila yesterday afternoon.

The deceased is Aklima Begum, 38, assistant sub-inspector of Borhanuddin police station.

Confirming the matter, OC Mazharul Amin said that ASI Aklima was returning to the police station on a motorcycle along with a constable after investigating a case.

“She fell on the road from the pillion when the motorcycle hit its emergency brake to save a pedestrian. At the time, a truck coming from the opposite direction ran over Aklima, killing her on the spot,” the OC said.

The truck was seized, but the driver fled the scene, he added.

Aklima’s husband Jasim Uddin is an SI at Bhola police station.
