College students went berserk as a bus ploughed through some of their fellows in front of Kurmitola General Hospital on Airport Road in the capital on Sunday, leaving two dead and 12 others injured.

The deceased were identified as Diya Khanam Mim, daughter of Jahangir Alam of Mohakhali and Abdul Karim Rajib, son of Nur Islam of Ashkona. Both of them were first-year students of the college Shaheed Ramizuddin Cantonment School and College.

Witnesses said the accident took place around 12:30 pm when a Uttara-bound bus of 'Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan' ploughed through the students as they were standing beside the road. They died on the spot.

The injured were taken to Kurmitola General Hospital, reports UNB.

They said the bus, coming from Mirpur, hit the students standing there just after it got down from the flyover on the busy road.

Dr. Manjur Alam Morshed, a physician at the hospital, said at least 14 victims were brought to the hospital and two of them were declared dead.

Nine of the injured, including five girls and four boys, were shifted to the Combined Military Hospital, Dhaka.

The condition of two of the nine students was stated to be critical, said another physician at Kurmitola General Hospital.

Angered by the tragic incident, the students of the college took to the streets and put up barricades on both sides of the road, disrupting traffic from 1 pm to 1:45 pm.

They also vandalised several vehicles and set fire to two buses, including the killer one.

Meanwhile, the traffic on the busy road returned to normalcy after law enforcers intervened.
