Obaidul: Road conditions shouldn’t be blamed for Rajib’s death
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said road conditions should not be blamed for the death of Titumir Government College student Rajib Hasan. “Road management is not responsible for Rajib’s death…the accident took place due to mismanagement in the transport sector,” said the minister while talking to reporters after visiting the activities of a mobile court at Hatirjheel in Dhaka. Referring to a recent newspaper report blaming road mismanagement for Rajib’s death, he said, “The accident has no link to good or bad condition of roads.

Drivers have to be more cautious,” said Obaidul, also the Awami League general secretary. Rajib, who lost his right arm when it was crushed between two buses in the city, died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital in the early hours of Tuesday. On April 3, a second year student of Titumir College, Rajib 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 ‘Swajan Paribahan’ bus tried to make its way through the narrow space between the BRTC bus and the footpath. However, Rajib's right arm was crushed in between the two buses and severed from the elbow. After the rescue, he was first taken to MH Samorita Hospital at Panthapath and then shifted to the DMCH.
