A Dhaka court has sent to jail a driver of a garbage truck of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) in a case lodged over the death of a motorcyclist after getting hit by the vehicle.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Atiqul Islam passed the order yesterday evening, as police produced the accused driver Abdus Salam before the court and pleaded to keep him behind the bars till the conclusion of probe in the case.
Victim Sabbir Ahmed Rocky, 23, stopped his motorcycle in front of main gate of the Police Staff College in Mirpur 13 around 4.30 pm on July 13. A few moments later, the speeding garbage truck hit him from behind in the area, leaving him seriously injured.
The onlookers rushed Sabbir to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a little later.
In the meantime, Salam, driver of the garbage truck, tried to escape the scene but locals managed to catch him and handed him over to police.
Sabbir's father filed the case with Kafrul Police Station in this regard.
