UODA students demand compensation, justice for Runi Akhter

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.
