One more arson victim dies
22 February 2015, Nirapad News: A bus helper, who sustained burn injuries in an arson in capital’s Khilgaon area, has died while undergoing treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
The deceased is Bappi Ahmed, 25, son of Md Dulal.
Partha Sankar Pal, residential surgeon of DMCH burn unit, said Bappi died around 11:45 am on Sunday.
Bappi received burn injuries when blockade supporters hurled petrol bombs on a bus on February 12.
So far, more than 70 people have died and scores have been injured in different parts of the country in violence during the non-stop blockade enforced by the BNP-led alliance.
Of this violence, a large number of arson attacks are being conducted on highways. Hundreds of vehicles, including those belonging to law-enforcers, were attacked and burnt.
The BNP led 20-party alliance has been enforcing this non-stop nationwide blockade since January 5 in protest against the “confinement” of party chief Khaleda Zia.
