Journey towards home for celebrating Eid-ul-Adha turned tragic for a family from Patuakhali this morning.
Abu Bakar, 3, was with her grandparents and aunt on a rickshaw going towards Dholaipur Bus Stand from Dhaka's Jurain area around 6:00am.
They were supposed to board a Patuakhali-bound bus to spend their Eid in the village home. But a truck suddenly hit their rickshaw from behind leaving all four of them injured.
Locals rushed them to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where the doctors declared Abu dead, Mizanur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Shyampur Police Station, told The Daily Star.
Abu's grandfather Jamal Gazi, 50, grandmother Joynob Begum, 45, and seriously hurt aunt Sadia, 7, were undergoing treatment at the hospital.
The driver fled the scene with his truck, the OC added.
