Just a day after the tragic death of a Notre Dame College student being hit by a DSCC truck, another man was crushed under the wheels of a DNCC vehicle in the city’s Panthapath area on Thursday.
The victim was identified as Ahsan Kabir Khan, 48, a printing-press businessman of Moghbazar in the city.
According to witnesses, Kabir, a pillion passenger of a motorcycle, fell on the opposite road of Bashundhara shopping mall being hit by the speeding truck around 2:30 PM.
Golam Rabbani, a sub-inspector of Kalabagan police station, rescued him from the spot and took him to the emergency department of Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) where doctors declared him dead around 4 pm.
Another injured person is being treated at a local hospital, he said.
Kabir’s wife, Nadira Parvin Rekha, said his husband did not know how to drive a motorcycle “He might be riding it with someone else,” she said.
Meanwhile, DNCC (Dhaka North City Corporation) has formed a three-member probe committee to investigate the accident and asked it to submit a report within three working days.
On Wednesday, Naim Hasan, a 17-year-student of Notre Dame College was killed after a DSCC garbage truck hit him at Golchattar in the city’s Gulistan area while crossing the road.
