A Tribute to Labannya লাবণ্যের মর্মান্তিক চলে যাওয়া


Fahmida Haque Labannya was a student of 3rd
year. She was studying computer science and engineering
at Brac University. On her way to university from Shyamoli, she
was run over by a pickup van. She was using ride-sharing. Their bike was hit from behind in front of
National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases in Sher-e-Bangla Nagar area around 11:15am. And that was all in her life. She was born in Mymensingh. Her residence in Dhaka is at Shyamoli. She was 21 years old and must have been a
brilliant student. She was studying the hardest and most creative
subject and in the leading university in Bangladesh. She was also the General Member of Public
Relations & Writings Department at Robotics Club of BRAC University. Police identified the driver as one Suman,
23, who also got hurt in the incident and took primary treatment at the emergency section
of nearby Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital (ShSMC). But police could not find him as he left the
hospital before they arrived. The tragic accident left the family in shock. Farhanul Haque Mridul, younger brother of
Fahmida, said his sister left their Shyamoli residence around 10:30am. Fahmida’s mother Farzana Haque broke down
in tears losing her only daughter. “She had a dream. She was going to be a computer engineer soon,”
said the lamenting mother. Sohel Rana, an eyewitness of the incident,
said the bike was on the middle of the road around 11:15am when a pickup van hit the motorcycle. “No sooner had the girl fell on the road
after the first hit, the speedy van ran over her head while fleeing the scene,” Sohel
told The Daily Star. Morgue sources said she had injuries on her
head and other parts of the body. Sub-Inspector Nurul Islam said he checked
the footages of the CCTV cameras installed nearby but they did not cover the accident
spot. Nurul took the phone number of Suman from
the hospital’s register. But his mobile was found switched off. SI Nurul said the ride-sharing companies were
providing passengers’ helmets only for the sake of traffic rules and to dodge the eyes
of the law enforcers. “The girl was wearing a helmet, but it was
too thin to protect her,” the police officer said. Jane Alam Munshi, officer-in-charge of Sher-e-Bangla
Nagar Police Station, said police were trying to track the motorcyclist to know details
about the incident. Hearing the news, many of her friends and
university mates gathered at the hospital premises and asked how the roads would be
made safer for commuters when deaths on road is unstoppable. “Every time a young life is cut short, we
start protesting. Is this how the things will go on?” asked
a Brac University student. The family demanded exemplary punishment of
the people involved in incident. The accident took place barely a month into
the killing of university student Abrar Ahmed in a road crash that triggered massive protests
over unsafe roads and poor traffic management. [News taken from The Daily Star and these
