Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has directed the authorities concerned to take action against those people who are responsible for Dhaka Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) girder tragedy that left five persons dead and two others injured.

The premier gave the instruction while attending a meeting of the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) on Tuesday.

Planning Minister MA Mannan disclosed the information during a press briefing after the meeting on Tuesday.

"Everyone from the project director to the contractor should be brought under investigation. Those responsible must be punished," the planning minister quoted the PM saying.

Five members of a family, including two children, were killed after a box girder of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project fell on their private car at Uttara in the capital on Monday afternoon.
