Rajib Hossain, a 22 year old student of Government Titumir College lost his right arm when a Swajan Paribahan bus crashed into a stationary BRTC doubledecker bus at the SAARC intersection on April 3.
He was rushed to Samorita Hospital on Panthapath, and was later transferred to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on April 4 for better treatment. Doctors could not reattach his severed arm.
Rajib died at DMCH on April 17 after being in a state of coma for nearly two weeks.
The High Court ordered the BRTC and Swajan Paribahan to pay the bills for Rajib’s treatment, and asked why they should not pay Tk 1 crore in compensation.
