The deceased Aminul Islam Rubel, 29, joined the crew just four days before the barge MV Harda sank on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Collected

He took the job to support his family financially

Aminul Islam Jewel, 29, joined the crew just four days before the barge MV Harda sank.

Aminul was buried at a graveyard after the Asr prayers on Thursday. His body had been recovered around 8:30am on Thursday morning, 20km away from the accident spot.   

He was the son of Hafez Md Sirajul Islam of Khulna city’s Jinnahpara.

He joined the barge’s crew on Saturday, April 6, to support his family financially. He was supposed to return home on Wednesday. 

Aminul’s wife Lipi said: “I last spoke to him on Tuesday, when he said he would return home on Wednesday. I never thought that he would return like this.”

Sirajul said: “Aminul was the only earner in the family. Now, I am very worried about running the family.”

Aminul was the eldest of four siblings. He and Lipi have a four year old son named Labib.

The MV Harda and a launch sank in the Passur Channel of the Sundarbans because of a Nor'wester in the region.

The launch ML Akter was carrying labourers, while the barge was carrying fertilizer. Both vessels sank around 8:30pm on Tuesday.
