Fellow students of Runi Akhter whose right leg was smashed against the base of a pavement in Dhaka's Farmgate by a bus on Wednesday, have demanded compensation from the bus owner and driver for her treatment.
Around 50 students at a human chain programme organised in front of University of Development Alternative (UODA) on Saat Masjid Road in Dhanmondi around 1:00pm also demanded the perpetrators of the incident should be brought to justice.
The 27-year-old Runi used to work for a firm to support her education.
Police on the day of the incident seized the bus and arrested the driver. A case was also filed in this connection.
At the human chain, the students, carrying different banners and placards, also sought safety in the roads.
On April 3, Rajib Hossain, a third-year student of Government Titumir College, lost his right hand after it got stuck between two speeding buses trying to overtake each other in the capital's Bangla Motor area.
