Schoolboy dies in brick fall

A minor schoolboy succumbed to his injuries around 11:45pm yesterday after fighting for life for over nine hours at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
The boy identified as Ashikur Rahman Emon, 9, son of tyre trader Anwar Hossain, sustained injuries as a brick fell on him from the roof of a building at Namapara in the city around 2:30pm. Emon was a student of class four of Mahila Samity School at Dhupkhola in the city's Gandaria.
Victim's maternal grandmother told The Daily Star that after taking lunch, Emon was playing in a lane near their house. A boy who lives in a nearby house came to their residence and informed that Emon was lying on the lane and bleeding profusely.
He was rushed to National Medical College Hospital at Sutrapur from where he was shifted to DMCH as his condition deteriorated.
Emon's father Anwar Hossain told The Daily Star that the doctors at the DMCH have advised him to take Emon to the ICU of the hospital which he could not manage.
Sub-Inspector Raju Ahmed of Gandaria Police Station said they came to know that a boy was injured critically as a brick fell on his head from a nearby building.
Police picked up rickshaw van puller Nasir in this connection.
During interrogation, Nasir told police that he had gone to the roof to oversee chilis following a request by a resident of the building. He said he knew nothing about the falling of the brick.
