They gave a 24-hour ultimatum to meet their demands

Government Bangla College students have given a 24-hour ultimatum of closing all ticket-counters of Hanif Enterprise if compensations are not given over the death of a Bangla College student.

The ultimatum came from a human chain organized in front of the college Sunday morning, which endured for half an hour.

Srabon Mintu, a final-year student of Political Science at the college, and his cousin Saju, were riding a motorbike that was allegedly hit by a Hanif Enterprise bus on June 14. 

Mintu died on the spot, and Saju is currently in the intensive care unit (ICU) at Enam Medical College and Hospital.

The students demanded the driver of the bus be brought to book, and a compensation of Tk5 crore be paid for the deceased's family.

They also demanded Hanif bear the full cost of Saju's treatment, and in case his legs need to be amputated, his family be given a compensation of Tk3 crore or more.

Saif Hossain, cousin of Mintu and Saji, told Dhaka Tribune: "Mintu was the eldest son in the family. Now that he is gone, who will take care of the family?

"We want compensation," he said. 

Immediately after the accident, the bus was seized, but later released. The driver was detained Sunday morning, Savar Model police station Officer-in-Charge Shahed said.

A case was filed over the incident with Savar police station.

Manik Chowdhury, a Masters student of Political Science at the same college, told Dhaka Tribune: “We will close all the ticket-counters of Hanif Enterprise in Dhaka if our demands are not met.”
