Man killed as DSCC garbage truck hits rickshaw

A man was killed after a garbage truck of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) allegedly hit a rickshaw in capital’s Wari area on Thursday morning.

The deceased was identified as Swapan Kumar Sarker (62).

Kabir Hossain Hawlader, officer-in-charge of Wari Police Station, said they came to know that the vehicle of DSCC hit the rickshaw carrying the victim around 6:45 am near Rajdhani Super Market, leaving him dead on the spot.

"As the driver of the vehicle sped away after the incident, police are trying to identify it from CCTV footage," he said. 

Earlier, in two separate incidents in late November, two persons including a Notre Dame College student were killed after two such vehicles of DNCC and DSCC hit them in Dhaka's Gulistan and Panthapath areas.
