A teenage motor-biker has been killed and another injured in a road accident near Jagannath Hall at Dhaka University (DU).
The deceased was identified as Shubra Biswas, 18, son Sunil Biswas, a resident of Azimpur Government Staff Quarter in the capital.
Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) police outpost Sub-Inspector Bachchu Mia said Shubra, along with his friend Imran, lost control over their motorbike and hit an island on the road around 4:30am on Saturday. They were rushed to DMCH after the accident.
Imran was later taken to Bogra Medical College Hospital by his family members, Bachchu added.
According to Shubra’s friend Mridul, they were attending their friend's marriage ritual (gaye halud) in the Old Town area. Shubra and Imran went out in the early morning to buy some drinks. They took the bike as nearby stores were closed.
Both Shubra and Imran passed HSC examination this year, Mridul added.
