The sad incident happened on July 28, 2019. Titash Ghosh, an injured student of class six, died in an ambulance on a ferry after the vessel waited long three hours at the Kathalbari Ferry Terminal for a senior government high official.
Thirteen-year-old Titash Ghosh, a student of Kalia Pilot Secondary School in Narail, was critically injured in a motorbike accident in Narail on, family members said. He was rushed to a hospital in Khulna and kept on life support. A day later, the doctors referred him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for an emergency operation.
The family with the child in an ambulance was coming to Dhaka and arrived at the Kathalbari Ferry Terminal in Munshiganj around
The ferry had been waiting for Md Abdus Sabur Mondal, the head of Digital Service and Public Service Innovation Cluster and E-service Implementation Specialist of the Access to Information (a2i) Programme at the Prime Minister’s Office. He said he did not know that a critically-injured patient was kept waiting or that a ferry was kept waiting for him.
Such an act is unacceptable.
