The deceased was identified as Mahbubar Rahman Faruq, a senior advocate at Bagura court and a former vice president of Bogura Bar Association.
Rubel Rana, warehouse inspector of Kahalu fire station, said that the accident occurred around 8am as soon as Mahbubar hit the main road after refuelling at Rahima filling station on Bogura Santahar Road.
