Titumir College student Rajib Hossain, who lost his right arm in a road accident involving buses from the BRTC and Swajan Paribahan, has succumbed to his injuries on Monday night.

Dhaka Medical College Hospital Police Outpost In-charge Bacchu Mia has confirmed the news.

The doctors declared him dead around 12:40am on Tuesday, he added.

Earlier, Prof Dr Shamsuzzaman Shahin, head of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) Orthopedic Department and chief of a 7-member medical board, told the Kalerkantho English version: “Rajib’s health is now stable. ”

But his relatives alleged that Rajib’s physical condition was not stable. The relatives also demanded the authorities concerned to take him abroad for treatment.

Health Minister Mohammed Nasim had assured Titumir College student Rajib Hossain of a government job.

Rajib, 22, a third-year student of Government Titumir College lost his right arm after it was sandwiched between two speeding buses trying to overtake each other on April 3.

He was admitted to Samorita Hospital immediately after the incident. He later shifted to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) the following day.

On April 4, the High Court directed the BRTC and Swajan Paribahan authorities to bear all the treatment cost Rajib.

The court also issued a rule asking the government and the bus owners to explain why they should not be directed to give Tk1 crore to Rajib Hossain in compensation.
