Woman run over and killed during snatching attempt
A woman was killed in Dhaka on Friday after being run over by a car carrying a group of muggers who were trying to snatch her purse. Helena Begum was an employee of Green Life Hospital in Green Road, Dhaka, Inspector Md Parvez Islam of Dhanmondi police station said. According to Parvez, Helena and her husband Monirul Islam had arrived in Dhaka in the early hours from Barisal. “They then took a bus from Sadarghat and got off at the stop near Dhanmondi Road 7 around 5am,” he said, quoting her husband. “When they were crossing the road, the muggers  approached in a white car and snatched Helena’s purse.” The car ran over her when she fell on the road and killed her on the spot, said the police official. He said police had rushed to the spot after hearing about the incident. Helena’s body was later sent to Dhaka Medical College morgue for autopsy. The inspector also said that an investigation was already underway as they were trying to catch the perpetrators. On December 18 last year, a five-month-old infant died after falling from a moving rickshaw in the city’s Doyaganj area when muggers attempted to snatch the mother’s purse.
