Two students of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment College were run over during a race between two buses of Jabale Nur Paribahan for passengers on Airport Road in Dhaka on Jul 29, 2018. The incident sparked widespread protests. Thousands of students took to the streets to demand the implementation of several demands in an unprecedented movement for road safety and justice for road crash victims. The authorities later initiated a project to construct an underpass at the spot following the protesters’ demand. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the underpass, named ‘Sur Saptak’ via video conferencing from the Ganabhaban on Wednesday, Jan 12, 2022. Photo: Asif Mahmud Ove
