A college girl died after her scarf got entangled with the motor of
an auto-rickshaw she was riding on in Shanir Akhra area yesterday.
Afrin Akhter Juthi, 18, along with two classmates was going home from
a lunch party around 4:30pm. She was an SSC candidate from a school in
Motijheel in the capital.
Anjuman Akhi, one of the classmates, said as the auto-rickshaw
reached Goyal Bari Mor, Juthi suddenly shrieked and banged her head with
the frame of the vehicle. There was blood coming out of her nose.
As the auto-rickshaw stopped, Akhi ran to the nearby chamber of Juthi's physician father.
“By the time I returned, locals took her to a clinic and the auto-rickshaw was gone,” she said.
Juthi was later taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where doctors declared her dead.
