The bus was seized from Sherion bus stand in the city

Law enforcement officials have seized the bus of “Mohammad Ali Paribahan” linked to an accident in which Feroz Rahman,  a Rajshahi College student, lost his forearm on Friday.

The bus was seized from Sherion bus stand in the city around 11pm on Sunday, Golam Ruhul Kuddus, additional deputy commissioner of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police (RMP) said.

Police also identified the bus driver as Faruk, a resident of Puthia upazila in Rajshahi, by scrutinizing CCTV footage, but he could not be arrested as yet, the police official added.

Feroz Rahman, 25, a Masters student of social welfare department of Rajshahi Government College, lost his right hand when a sand-laden truck hit the back of a bus in Katakhali area on the outskirts of Rajshahi city on Friday.

When the accident took place, he kept his right arm on the window, according to police. Feroz was travelling on the bus while going to Rajshahi from his home in Nandigram, Bogra.

The law enforcers, however, could not trace the truck yet. 

On Sunday, doctors at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital said they somehow managed to stop the bleeding, but they could not join the hand that was severed during the accident.

Feroz underwent surgery on Friday night, and he is out of danger, the doctors said.

Students of Rajshahi Government College burst into protest at the college premises, and demanded punishment of both the bus, and truck driver.

The bus was overcrowded, and the driver was driving very roughly, said Feroz’s friend Biressar 

Pramanik, who was also travelling with him.

Passengers asked the driver several times to drive carefully, he said.

When they boarded the bus, Feroz managed a seat in the back row, while he could not get a seat, Biressar said.
