A 10-year old girl was killed on her way to school after being hit by a bus at Tongi in Gazipur on Saturday.
The deceased was identified as Fatema Haque, a student of class three of Sahajuddin School.
Her aunt Shahnaj Begum also suffered injuries in the accident.
Fatema used to live with her paternal aunt at Bonomala in Tongi as both her parents are Dubai expatriates, said Yasin Arafat, Sub-Inspector of Tongi east police station.
When Fatema with her aunt Shahnaj was going to school by a rickshaw around 7 am a staff bus of Kohinoor Chemicals Factory hit it, leaving her dead on the spot.
Angered by the accident, hundreds of students of Sahajuddin School blocked Bonomala-Tongi road around 10 am and staged demonstrations demanding arrest of the bus driver, said police.
After an hour students left the road around 11 am after police and teachers assured them of justice, said SI Yasin Arafat.
“The body has been sent for an autopsy and legal action will be taken in this regard,” said Jabed Khan Masud, officer-in-Charge of Tongi east police station.
