A rickshaw puller died when an unidentified vehicle hit him in Dhaka's Tejgaon area early today.

The vehicle hit his rickshaw when Moksedul was crossing Bijoy Sarani area around 4:00am, leaving him critically injured, said Abdur Razzak, a sub-inspector of Tejgaon Police Station.

He was rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where doctors declared him dead, he said.

The victim's elder sister Fahida Akter said his brother used to live with his family at East Nakhal Para area.
