Forty two year old Swapan, who died in the Moghbazar-Malibagh flyover accident on Monday, came to Dhaka when he was just 7 years old to make his fortune.
A carpenter by profession, he saved every penny he made to send his two sons to school.
His friend Abdul Kuddus Babu said Swapan was called into work at 1am and offered Tk500 extra to work as guard at the construction site.
Hearing the news of his death, this wife of 17 years Ruby Akhter fainted at her brother's house, unable to process the news of the only breadwinner of the family passing away.
His two sons Imon, a SSC student in Kishoreganj, and Imran, a madrasa student, will bury their father in Pakundia, Kishoreganj today.
