All of them have been hospitalized with two in ICU
Five people, including model and actor Nazifa Tushi, were injured in a road accident on Gulshan Avenue in the capital in the early hours of Friday.
The others injured in the crash are actors Shariful Islam Raj, Khairul Bashar, and Junaid Bogdadi, and Raj’s friend Nafij Mohammad Ismail.
All of them were rushed to United Hospital for treatment.
Raj, Tushi and Khairul recently garnered public attention after the release of their movie “Networker Baire” at over-the-top (OTT) media service platform earlier this month.
Doctors said Tushi, Raj, and Bashar were out of danger and undergoing treatment at the cabin of the hospital under the supervision of orthopedic specialist Dr Rezaul Karim, Bangla Tribune reports.
Junaid and Nafij were in ICU under the supervision of Prof SS Ahmed, said the hospital sources.
The duo was believed to have sustained head injuries. The extent of the head injuries would be determined as soon as the CT Scan reports come, the source added.
Gulshan police station OC Abul Hasan said the speeding car hit an electric pole on the road, crushing the front of the car.
“Initially we can say that the accident occurred due to rash driving,” the official said.
