Students of Jahangirnagar University have released 15 buses of Selfie Paribahan–involved in a fatal accident last week–after the bus authorities paid the family of the deceased Tk8 lakh in compensation.

The buses were released from the JU campus around 10pm on Monday. 

Rubel Parvez, 32, a former student of JU and recommended for recruitment for the Bangladesh Civil Service in the 41st BCS (Education) cadre, was killed in a collision between two buses of Selfie Paribahan in Dhamrai on the morning of December 7.

Students of the university later seized 25 buses of Selfie Paribahan demanding Tk25 lakh for Rubel’s family. Ten buses were initially released after discussions with the owners.

The Selfie Paribahan authorities held several rounds of discussions with Prof Dr Abdullah Hel Kafi of the International Relations Department of the university for the release of the rest of the buses.

On Monday night, after a long discussion between the two sides, the two sides agreed on Tk8 lakh in compensation. 

Then the buses were released after the deceased’s family received the amount. 

Prof Abdullah Hel Kafi told Dhaka Tribune the matter was resolved in the presence of the Savar upazila nirbahi officer. 

Two persons, including Rubel Parvez, were killed and another was injured in the road accident on the Dhaka-Aricha highway in Dhamrai upazila of Dhaka early on Thursday.
