HC rule for providing treatment to accident victims

STAFF REPORTER
HC rule for providing treatment to accident victims

The High Court yesterday issued a rule asking the government to explain why the health ministry should not be directed to instruct all medical college hospitals and clinics to provide primary treatment to the accident victims. In response to a writ petition filed by Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh (HRPB), the HC bench comprising Justice Syed Mohammad Dastagir Hossain and Justice Ataur Rahman Khan issued the rule.

A total of 12 officials including health secretary have been made respondents to the rule. The HRPB filed the petition following media reports over the recent death of Ibrahim, 33, and Helena Begum, 35, who were killed by muggers in the capital on January 26.

The separate incidents took place at Sayedabad and Dhanmondi area in the wee hours of the day.

The petitioner said that Ibrahim sustained severe injuries with a knife attack by the muggers at Sayedabad area on January 26. He was rushed to Salahuddin Specialised Hospital at Tikatuli in the capital.

But, the hospital authorities refused to provide him with the first aid and advised to send him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. Ibrahim died on the way to DMCH the same day, according to the petition.

In another incident the same day, criminals who were in a car attempted to snatch Helena Begum's handbag in Dhanmondi, dragging her 200 yards. Eventually, she was crushed to death under the wheels.

Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh has submitted the writ petition to the HC as public interest litigation yesterday and submitted the newspaper reports on the two incidents.
