9 people killed in Rangpur road accident; Jamaat Ameer condoles

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 5th September 2022 expressing deep condolence as nine people were killed and at least 50 were injured in a head-on collision between two buses on Rangpur-Dinajpur highway in Rangpur early today (September 5, 2022).

A head-on collision between two buses on Rangpur-Dinajpur highway near Kharubhaj Bridge in Taraganj upazila took place around 12.30 am. 5 people were killed on the spot and while 4 others died while undergoing treatment. More than 50 passengers became injured. Often, such an accident takes place due to reckless driving and lack of awareness. I am deeply shocked and saddened by this accident.

The casualties that happened this time will not be fulfilled easily. I am expressing deep shock for the deceased and praying for the salvation of the departed souls. I am also extending sympathy to their mournful families. Besides, I am urging the concerned authorities to pay due compensation to the victim families and also to take proper initiatives to facilitate the treatment of the wounded victims.
