Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday consoled the parents of private university student Abrar Ahmed Chowdhury, who was killed in a road accident on Progati Sarani near Jamuna Future Park on Tuesday.
Abrar’s parents met the premier at her official Ganabhaban residence in the capital on Friday night.
“Brig Gen (retd) Arif Ahmed Chowdhury and Farida Fatemi, the father and mother of Abrar, went to Ganabhaban around 8:15 pm and stayed there for nearly one hour,” PM’s Deputy Press Secretary Shakhawat Moon told.
The prime minister consoled Abrar’s parents and expressed deep shock and sorrow at the tragic death of their son, Moon said.
She also prayed for eternal peace of the departed soul.
Mayor of Dhaka North City Corporation Atiqul Islam, PM’s Military Secretary Major General Mian Mohammad Zainul Abedin and Abrar’s brother were present on the occasion.
Abrar, a first-year honours student of International Relations Department at Bangladesh University of Professionals (BUP), was killed after a bus of ‘Suprobhat Paribahan’ ran him over at Nodda near Dhaka’s Bashundhara Residential area on Tuesday morning.
