Dhaka: Rajib Hossain, who had lost his right hand after it being pressed between two buses in Dhaka, died undergoing treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) in the early hours of Tuesday.

Quoting DMCH physician Dr. Reza, Rajib’s uncle Alamin said the ICU physicians called me at about 11:30pm and told me that Rajib’s condition deteriorated. Later, they declared him dead at about 12:40am.

Earlier, on 10 April, Rajib Hossain was on life support in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital as he suffered brain hemorrhage during the accident.

On 3 April, Rajib, who was year II student of Govt Titumir College, was going to his college by a double-decker Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BTRC) bus. He was standing on the rear gate dangling his right hand outside as the bus was overcrowded.

When the bus got stranded at the Sonargaon crossing near Panthakunja park, a ‘Sajan Paribahan’ bus tried to make its way

through the narrow space on between the BRTC bus and the footpath. However, Rajib’s right hand was pressed in between the two buses and got severed from the elbow.

Being rescued, the victim was taken to MH Samorita Hospital at Panthapath where he was now undergoing treatment.
