Former deputy editor of Bangla daily Kaler Kantho Abdullah Al-Faruk died in a road accident in the capital’s Kakrail area early yesterday.

Sub-Inspector of Ramna police station Md Mohiuddin told the Dhaka Tribune a truck hit Faruk when he was crossing a road in front of Hotel Razmoni Ishakha around 1am.

“The victim was first taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital and then to Square Hospitals where he succumbed to injuries around 5am,” he said, adding that the trucker was yet to be detained.

“We will check if any CCTV camera was installed near the site of the accident. If we find any, we will collect the footage to find the trucker. Faruk’s family has not yet filed any case,” said SI Mohiuddin.  

Faruk, who hailed from Santhia in Pabna district, lived in the capital’s Mohammadpur with his family members that include his wife Parvin Akhter, ninth-grader daughter Adita Faruk, and second-grader son Samin Adib.

His namaz-e-janaza was held three times – at the National Press Club, Dhaka Reporters Unity and his Mohammadpur residence in Tajmahal Road. He was laid to rest at Azimpur graveyard at 7pm.
