A woman has died after being run over by a bus at Dhaka’s Shantinagar area.

The victim, Kaniz Fatema Ruma, 30, an employee at Quantum Blood Bank lab in Shantinagar, died while undergoing treatment at Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) on Tuesday.

“Ruma was on her way to her workplace from Mirpur’s Pallabi area by a Al Makkah Paribahan bus. When the bus came to near Shantinagar intersection, she fell down on the road while trying to get off hastily and the bus ran over her legs. Later, locals took her to DMCH in critical condition,” Ruma’s husband Shafiqul Islam told Dhaka Tribune.

Confirming the death, DMCH police outpost in-charge Inspector Bacchu Mia said: “The victim died while receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital at 1pm.”

The body has been kept at the hospital mortuary for autopsy, he added.
