Health minister: Govt will bear Rajib’s treatment costs
The government will bear the treatment costs of Rajib Hossain, who lost one of his arms in an accident, says Health Minister Mohammed Nasim. He made the announcement while visiting the college student at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Thursday. The minister went to the hospital around 12:30pm and inquired about Rajib’s treatment. “It is our responsibility to save Rajib. He lost his right arm in the accident. He also sustained injury to the head,” said Nasim. The minister said Rajib was shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of the hospital in the early hours of Thursday morning, since his condition deteriorated. “He is receiving good treatment. We hope he will get well soon,” he said. Nasim said a seven-member medical board has been formed to treat the college student and that the government would bear his treatment costs. The health minister also said the government would arrange a job for Rajib. “He is an orphan and has two younger brothers. The government will arrange a job for him on humanitarian grounds.” The minister said they would pay the bill of Samorita Hospital. The private hospital said the bill for Rajib’s treatment was Tk1,26,000. He said those responsible for the accident would be brought to justice. On Tuesday, Rajib, a student of Government Titumir College, lost his arm when a Swajan Paribahan bus hit a BRTC double-decker bus, which was parked near Saarc Fountain in the city’s Karwan Bazar. He was rushed to Samorita Hospital in Panthapath and was shifted to the DMCH for better treatment. This article was first published on banglatribune.com
