A differently-abled minor student has been killed after a speeding bus ran him over in Gopalganj.

The incident took place on Gopalganj-Tungipara road in Malekbazar area of Tungipara upazila around 11am on Saturday.

The deceased has been identified as Korban Sardar, 12, from Sriramkandi village of Tungipara. 

Korban was a primary grade student of Special Education School for Students with Disabilities & Technical Training Centre, located in Malekbazar area. He had been staying at the school’s rehabilitation centre for the past two weeks.

The Rehabilitation Centre Nurse Halima Begum said: “Ratna Begum, mother of Korban, admitted him here at the centre 15 days ago. Korban started his primary education while staying at the centre.

“Since the school remains close on Friday and Saturday, we did not notice Korban leaving the centre premises on Saturday morning," she said. "Later, a speeding bus ran him over while he was trying to cross road, leaving him dead on the spot."

Tungipara Police Station Sub-Inspector (SI) Kamruzzaman said the body has been recovered and sent to Gopalganj General Hospital morgue.
