Death of Diya, Rajib in road accident: Verdict Sunday

A Dhaka court is going to deliver its verdict in a case filed over the death of college students Diya and Rajib, who were killed in a road accident on Airport Road in Dhaka in 2018.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Imrul Kayes is expected to pronounce the verdict on Sunday.

The same judge on November 14 concluded the arguments from both sides and fixed December 1 to deliver the verdict.

Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib, first year students of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment College, were killed and nine others wounded as a bus of ‘Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan’ ploughed through some students in front of Kurmitola General Hospital on July 29, 2018.

Their tragic deaths angered the students across the country and they took to the streets protesting the incident, demanding safe roads and seeking exemplary punishment of the persons responsible for the accident.

Mim’s father Jahangir Alam, later, lodged a case with Dhaka Cantonment Police Station, in this connection
