Govt Titumir College student Rajib Hasan, who died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital early Tuesday after getting his right arm lost being pressed between two buses in the city, will be laid to eternal rest in Bauphal upazila of Patuakhali district.

Bachchu Mia, sub-inspector of DMCH police camp, said Rajib's body will be taken to the High Court premises from the hospital where his first namaz-e-janaza will be held at 2pm.

Later, the body will be sent to Patuakhali for burial, he said.

UNB Patuakhali correspondent said Rajib will be buried at the village of his maternal grandfather at Chashpara in Bauphal after the body reaches there.

Earlier, in the morning, an autopsy was conducted on Rajib's body at the DMCH.

Dr Pradip Biswas, who conducted the autopsy, said "There's no major injury to his hand. But there's blood clots in the brain and a portion of skull was broken due to the accident."

The life support of Rajib was removed around 12:40 am at the Intensive Care Unit of Dhaka Medical College Hospital. He had been kept on life support at the hospital since April 10.

Rajib, son of late Helal Uddin of Indrakun village in Bauphal, lost his parents in his early age. Since then, he had been the guardian of his two younger brothers.

On April 3, Rajib Hasan, a 2nd year student of Govt Titumir College, was going to attend his classes by a double-decker bus of Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BTRC). He was standing on the rear gate dangling his right hand outside as the bus was overcrowded.

When the bus got stranded at the Sonargaon crossing near Panthakunja park, a 'Sajan Paribahan' bus tried to make its way through the narrow space in between the BRTC bus and the footpath. However, Rajib's right hand was pressed in between the two buses and got severed from the elbow.

Being rescued, the victim was first taken to MH Samorita Hospital at Panthapath and then shifted to the DMCH.
