Parents of Diya and Rajib, the two college students who died in the earlier this week’s dreadful bus crash on the Airport Road, today called on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the Prime Minister's Office. Sheikh Hasina consoled the parents and said she would stand by the families with all possible supports. The premier also gave saving certificates of Taka 20 lakh to each of the families, local media reports said citing PMO officials.
Diya Khanam Mim, 15, and Abdul Karim, 16, two students of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment College were killed as two buses of Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan mow them down in an unnatural race of overtaking. Several other students were reported injured.
The fatal accident sparked huge outcry that led to series of protests questioning the government’s feeble road safety management.
