In a circular on Wednesday, the ministry said the reconstituted committee is effective from the previous date

The Shipping Ministry on Thursday reconstituted a probe committee to look into the death of 11-year-old Titas Ghosh.

Titas died in an ambulance after a ferry was reportedly delayed to accommodate a government official in Madaripur on Thursday, July 25.

Additional Secretary Sanjay Kumar Banik has been made convener of the committee. The other members are Joint Secretary Shahnewaz Dilruba Khan and Deputy Secretary SM Shah Habibur Rahman Hakim.

A two-member body was formed on July 29. In a circular on Wednesday, the ministry said the reconstituted committee is effective from the previous date.

The committee has been asked to submit a preliminary report within seven working days.

Titas was critically injured in a motorcycle accident on July 25. He was being taken to Dhaka in an ambulance for better treatment when the vehicle got stuck in a ferry at the Kathalbari terminal in Shibchar upazila, Madaripur.

The vessel waited three hours to leave the dock for Abdus Sabur Mandal, a joint secretary at the Prime Minister’s Office working on the Access to Information (a2i) project.

The ferry terminal authority was reportedly asked to wait for Mandal to arrive.

However, Titas lost a lot of blood during the wait and succumbed to his injuries on the way to Dhaka.
