Rajib Hasan, who died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) early Tuesday following a tragic road accident, was laid to eternal rest at Dashpara village in Bauphal upazila of Patuakhali on Wednesday.
The second-year student of Government Titumir College in Dhaka was buried at a graveyard at his maternal grandfather’s village around 9:45am after a second namaz-e-janaza in Bauphal around 9:15 am.
Among others, Chief Whip ASM Feroz, the district’s deputy commissioner, superintendent of police, and municipality mayor attended the namaz-e-janaza.
On Tuesday, the first namaz-e-janaza of Rajib was held on the High Court premises.
An autopsy was conducted on Rajib’s body at the DMCH Tuesday morning.
On April 3, Rajib was going to his college by a double-decker bus of Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BTRC). He was standing beside the rear door of the bus dangling his right hand outside as the vehicle was overcrowded.
When the bus got stranded at the Sonargaon crossing near Panthakunja park, a Sajan Paribahan bus tried to make its way through a narrow space between the BRTC bus and a footpath. Pressed between the two buses, Rajib's right hand got severed from the elbow.
Once rescued, the victim was first taken to MH Samorita Hospital at Panthapath and then shifted to the DMCH.
Dr Pradip Biswas who conducted the autopsy said: “There were blood clots in the brain and a portion of skull was broken due to the accident.”
Rajib, originally from Indrakul village in Bauphal, lost his parents at his early age.
Since then, he had been the guardian of his two younger brothers.
