Dhaka: Rajib Hasan, the Titumir College student, who lost his right hand after it got stuck between two buses in the city’s Banglamotor area on April 4, died early Tuesday at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
DMCH police camp in-charge sub-inspector Bachhu Miah confirmed it shortly afterwards.
Rajib suffered brain hemorrhage in the accident and was on life support since April 10.
“Taking our permission, doctors removed his life support at 12:40 am,” Rajib's uncle Jahidul Islam said.
On April 3, Rajib Hasan, a 2nd year student of Govt Titumir College, was going to attend his classes by a double-decker bus of Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BTRC). 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 taken to MH Samorita Hospital at Panthapath.
Later, he was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of DMCH.
