Kollam: Three people were killed in a motorbike accident in the beach area here on Friday, police said.

The deceased, all fishermen, are Al Amin, Mahin and Sudheer. The incident was reported from the Thanni beach area under Eravipuram police station limit in the wee hours on Friday. 

Police said the three were on the same two-wheeler. An investigation is on to ascertain the cause of the accident, they said.

All of them died on the spot and their bodies were shifted to Kollam General Hospital for postmortem, they added.

It is suspected that the fishermen were killed after their bike rammed into a sea wall erected in the beach area to prevent sea erosion. They were en route to Shaktikulangara to collect the catch for the day.

Their bodies were spotted by people who were out on their morning walks.
