Janata Bank employee killed in Manikganj road accident
A Janata Bank employee was killed after a motorcycle hit his bicycle near Beutha Bridge in Manikganj town today.
The deceased, Md Abul Hossain Mia (54) was the caretaker of Janata Bank's Manikganj Corporate Branch, reports our local correspondent quoting family members of the deceased.
Md Abul was returning home from the bank on his bicycle around 1:45pm when a speeding motorcycle from the opposite direction hit him, said his son Akash Ahmed.
Locals rushed him to Manikganj District Hospital from where he was referred to National Institute of Neurosciences & Hospital in Dhaka due to severe head injury.
The doctors at the hospital in Dhaka declared Md Abul Hossain dead around 5:30 pm, Akash added.
Akash Ahmed alleged that when locals tried to seize the motorcycle, the biker identified himself as a policeman of Manikganj Sadar Police Station and left.
However, Akbar Ali Khan, officer-in-charge (OC) of the police station claimed that the allegation was baseless.
