RajibRajib Hossain, a third year student of the Government Titumir College was stuck between two busses, lost his right hand and sustained critical injuries to his head. Later on April 17, he succumbed to his injuries at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

The ruling also instructed the High Court to form a committee to find out the guilty party between two transportation companies.

After hearing two appeals filed by Bangladesh Road and Transport Corporation and Sajan Paribahan challenging the HC order, a four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain stayed the order.

On May 8, the HC directed the BRTC and Swajan Paribahan authority to pay the compensation following a writ petition filed by Barrister Ruhul Quddus.
