Father educating his only son with dreams and hopes so that he can take the helm of the family at the end of education. He was supposed to take part in the next HSC examination. He was also taking preparation for the exam but the cruel irony of fate turned that dream into a nightmare right in front of the father’s eyes.

HSC examinee Md Majedur Rahman – son of Md. Shahidul Islam of Uradab village in Barora UP of Nagarpur, Tangail and a commerce student of Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani Degree College in Delduar upazila – was killed in a road accident on Thursday morning at Pakulla area on Dhaka-Tangail Highway in Mirzapur upazila.

Majedur was very dear to everyone. My father-in-law Shahidul Islam had many dreams around him. He was supposed to take part in the next HSC examination. But now he cannot, said Sohail Rana, brother-in-law of Majedur Rahman, in a tearful voice. 

On Thursday morning, Majidur was going to Konabari on a motorcycle with Shahidul Islam on business. But he died in a road accident, he also said, adding, “I never imagined that we would lose him in this way. I am demanding punishment for the bus driver and helper.”

Gorai Highway Police Station SI Shahidul Islam said a Konak Paribahan bus leaving Panchagarh was heading towards Dhaka. The motorcycle was pushed from behind in the Pakulla area of Mirzapur. The motorcyclist Majedur was killed on the spot. Majedur’s father Shahidul Islam was injured in the incident. 

The bus has been taken into police custody. Majedur’s body will be handed over to his family at the end of the legal process, he added.
