Three fishermen, including two brothers, were crushed under the wheels of a train in Barhatta upazila of Netrakona early Sunday.
The deceased were identified as Jahangir and his brother Swapan, and Mukhles, hailed from the same upazila.
Md Mazharul Haque, officer-in-charge of Mymensingh Government Railway Police, said the trio met their tragic end when they were crushed under the Mohonganj-bound Haor Express from Dhaka in Dashal area around 3:30am as they were reportedly in deep sleep on railway tracks.
Police suspect that they could not hear the train horn due to the sound of a running shallow machine for digging a pond.
In-charge of Mohanganj Railway Police Outpost Samar Barua said police recovered the bodies and sent them to Netrakona General Hospital morgue for autopsy.
Meanwhile, railway police have started investigation into the incident, he added.
