The starving workless and poor people looted relief goods from a truck at Jamalpur municipality's Mukundabari on Sunday.
The truck was carrying 600 bags of 10kg rice and 600 bags of 3kg potatoes to Bania Bazar area to distribute relief among the poor, the locals said.
On the way, hungry men and women seized the vehicle and looted it.
After that, the truck hurriedly left the spot.
