Friends, well wishers, and colleagues of Dhaka Tribune employee Nazim Uddin, who was killed in a deadly road crash, have demanded punishment to the full extent of the law for the driver of the bus.

They made the demand during a human chain in front of the National Press Club on Monday. 

Lalmohan Foundation, a local organization of Nazim’s home district of Bhola, organized the event.  

Nazim was a general secretary of the foundation. 

Dhaka Tribune staffers were also present at the program. 

Bhola-3 MP Nurunnnabi Chowdhury Shawon, who attended the human chain, pledged to provide financial assistance to Nazim’s family.

He said he would make efforts to amend the law so that the drivers’ penalty can be increased.  

Nazim’s father-in-law Arif Hossain demanded that the authorities concerned ensure financial assistance for the family. He also urged the MP to ensure punishment for the driver under the full extent of the law. 

Shahin Ahsan, head of the advertisement department at Dhaka Tribune, also spoke at the program. 

Md Hasan, president of the foundation, urged the government to monitor the drivers’ performance. 

He said the companies that import the vehicles should provide proper training to the drivers. 

Hasan also demanded that the authorities should ensure that the drivers cannot get bail.

Nazim, a senior executive of the Dhaka Tribune’s advertisement department, was killed on Thursday as a bus hit his motorcycle while it was trying to overtake another bus and ran over him, on the Mayor Mohammad Hanif Flyover in Jatrabari. 

He was rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), where doctors pronounced him dead.

Police later impounded two buses involved in the incident that led to Nazim's death. One staff member from each of the two buses was detained.
