A man fell off a moving bus and was run over in Chittagong on Wednesday, while trying to escape angry passengers after he was reportedly found harassing two women on the vehicle.

The accident happened on the Bakalia portion in the city’s Shah Amanat Bridge around 9pm, police said. 

Identifying the deceased as Ismail Hossain, 25, Bakalia police OC Nejam Uddin said they were questioning the bus driver’s assistant and three passengers in this regard.

“Preliminary interrogation has found that Ismail was trying to escape other passengers, who were angry by his alleged objectionable behaviour. When he tried to get off the bus in a hurry, he fell under the rear wheels,” Nejam said.

He said Ismail’s body was later sent to Chittagong Medical College Hospital.
