Rajib Hossain, the Government Titumir College student, who died Tuesday at Dhaka Medical College Hospital(DMCH), after losing his right hand after it got stuck between two buses in Dhaka’s Banglamotor area on April 4, will be buried in Patuakhali.
Bachchu Mia, sub-inspector of DMCH police camp, said Rajib’s body will be taken to the High Court premises from the hospital where his first namaz-e-janaza will be held at 2pm.
Rajib passed away after Monday midnight, said DMCH Camp-in-charge SI Bachhu Miah.
Rajib had already lost his right arm in the terrible accident, and doctors had also failed to revive his brain which suffered traumatic injury in the accident, and he had to be put on life support in the aftermath of the accident, he added.
He was put on life support when he began having breathing difficulty at the hospital’s ICU on Apr 10. He also appeared less ‘conscious’ of his surroundings than he was before.
On April 4, Rajib Hasan, a 2nd year student of Govt Titumir College, was going to attend his classes by a double-decker bus of BRTC. He was standing on the rear gate dangling his right hand outside as the bus was overcrowded.
When the bus got stranded at the Sonargaon crossing near Panthakunja park, a ‘Sajan Paribahan’ bus tried to make its way through the narrow space on between the BRTC bus and the footpath. However, Rajib’s right hand was pressed in between the two buses and got severed from the elbow.
Being rescued, the victim was rushed to MH Samorita Hospital at Panthapath.
Later, he was refered to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of DMCH.
