A court had granted bail to the bus driver and owner in the case on Monday

A Kushtia court on Tuesday cancelled the bail granted to the owner and the driver of a bus of Ganj-e-Raj Paribahan, in the case filed over the death of 13-month-old Akifa Yasmin in a road accident in the district on August 28.

The court, led by Senior Judicial Magistrate MM Morshed, cancelled the bail and issued arrest warrants against the two in the morning, said SI Azhar Ali.

A court had granted bail to the bus driver and owner in the case on Monday. Senior Judicial Magistrate Morshed had passed the order when their lawyers filed separate petitions for bail before the court.

Earlier on Sunday, members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Joynal Abedin, the owner of the bus, from his house in Faridpur. He was subsequently sent to jail.

Meanwhile, driver Mahid Mia alias Khokon surrendered before the court on Monday morning.

A ten-member probe body formed by the government visited the site of the accident, at Chourhash intersection in Kushita, at noon. The team also visited Akifa’s parents.

Akifa, the one-year-old daughter of Harunur Rashid and Rina Akter, sustained injuries after she fell from her mother's lap when a bus of Ganj-e-raj Paribahan hit her in Kushtia on August 28. Akifa died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on August 30. 

Her father filed a case with Kushita Model police station against bus driver Khokon, owner Joynal, and supervisor Yunus on the same day.

Video footage of the incident went viral on social networking site Facebook, sparking outrage among locals.
