Going to buy flowers today turns fatal for young vendor

A youth died after being hit by an unidentified vehicle near Dhaka’s Matsya Bhaban this morning.

Dipu Mia (26) went to Shahbagh area to buy flowers when the accident happened around 6:00am. He was a seasonal flower vendor, according to his family sources.

Some pedestrians took him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where he died at the Neurosurgery ward around 9:30am, said Inspector Bachchu Mia, in-charge of hospital’s police outpost.

Mahbubul Islam, victim’s cousin, said Dipu called him early in the morning and said he was going to Shahbagh to buy some flowers — so he could sell them today (Valentine’s Day).

Later, a pedestrian called him and said Dipu met an accident and was lying near the filling station at Matsya Bhaban, he said.

Dipu used to live in his grandfather’s house in Jatrabari area.

The body was sent to hospital morgue for autopsy.
