Railway police brought them wounded and unconscious to Dhaka Medical College Hospital

Two unidentified children have been rescued in separate incidents and brought to Dhaka Medical College Hospital by Railway police.

Railway police station Sub-Inspector (SI) on August 10 rescued the wounded child from the Airport Railway station and brought him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for treatment.

The boy child, who identifies himself as Ibrahim, is now undergoing treatment at the Neuro-Surgery Department of the hospital.

When asked about the child, the on-duty nurse, Sabina Yesmin, said that Railway police found 10-year-old Ibrahim in an unconscious state near the railway track, and brought him to the hospital. 

Soon after his admission to the DMCH, the Sub-Inspector left the hospital premises.

She said Ibrahim had been severely ill when he was brought in, but now his condition marked significant improvement. According to the nurse, Ibrahim was initially fed through a feeding tube but now he can feed himself.

Nooruddin, a patient attendant next to Ibrahim, said the child does not have anyone to look after him. A nurse bought a T-shirt and some milk for the child. 

He said: " We gave him bananas and soft food items."

When asked about the child, Railway police SI Kabir Hossain said the boy  reportedly fell from the Airport foot over bridge and suffered injuries. On information, police rushed to the spot and took him to DMCH. 

The child's identity could not be determined yet. Police said the child appeared to have been a street urchin. 

In a similar incident, Railway Police rescued an 11 year old child on Wednesday morning. 

The child with bandages wrapped around his head and right knee, was also found at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital. People next to his hospital bed said that police brought the boy to this ward and left soon after. 

An on-duty nurse said the child was admitted at 10:00am. He said a policeman identified as Anis brought the child. 

Talking to one Mominur Rahman, an attendant of a patient next to the child, told Dhaka Tribune that the child said his name was Saiful and he was twelve years of age.

A police constable, apparently involved in the child's rescue incident, said that the badly wounded child was found lying at platform no 7 of Kamalapur Railway station on Wednesday morning. 

Later, the child was rushed to DMCH. The boys identity could not be determined yet.
