Truck runs over freedom fighter in Dhaka

A freedom fighter was run over by a truck near Muktijoddha Market in the capital’s Mirpur area.

Deceased Abdul Khalek Hawlader, 65, a resident of Shah Ali Bagh in Dhaka, said Salauddin Miah, officer-in-charge of Shah Ali Police Station.

A truck of Dhaka North City Corporation rammed Khalek violating the signal while he was crossing the road near the Market, OC Salauddin told The Daily Star.

Khalek was rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries later, he said.

Police seized the vehicle while its driver managed to flee the scene.

The victim’s son-in-law Sazzad Hossain said, “My father-in-law was a freedom fighter. I demand punishment for the killing”.
