Bus accident victim Rajib in critical condition
Rajib Hossain, the 22-year-old college student who lost one of his arms in a bus accident in Dhaka last week, is in critical condition, according to his doctors. “A swelling has developed in the place where Rajib was injured in his head, and he is haemorrhaging again. It is not possible to operate on him in this condition,” said Dr Kanak Kanti Barua, vice-chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU). Rajib's condition started deteriorating around 4am on Tuesday. He started having respiratory problems, and his latest CT scan showed neurological disarrangement, said Prof Dr Md Shamsuzzaman Shahin, head of the orthopaedic department at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), where Rajib is undergoing treatment. Seeing his deteriorating condition, the medical board overseeing his treatment contacted Dr Kanak Kanti Barua, who visited the patient around 3pm on Tuesday, said Shahin, who is heading the medical board. The doctor further said Rajib's family had been informed of his critical condition and that his chances of surviving were slim. A student of Government Titumir College in Dhaka, Rajib lost his right arm when a bus of Sajan Paribahan hit a BRTC double-decker bus parked at SAARC circle on April 3. He was rushed to Samorita Hospital in Panthapath, and later transferred to DMCH on April 4 for better treatment. Doctors could not re-attach his severed arm. On April 5, Health Minister Mohammad Nasim visited Rajib and assured his family that the government would bear the full cost of his treatment. The minister also assured that Rajib, upon his recovery, would be given a government job on humanitarian grounds. This article was first published on banglatribune.com
