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. 

Salam's counsel, however, pleaded for his bail. The court also set July 20  for holding hearing on the bail plea.

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.
