A woman died after being crushed between two vehicles while crossing the road in front of Gulistan Golap Shah Mazar in the capital on Sunday.
The victim was identified as Parveen Begum (40).
The incident occurred at around 1 pm.
A Bangladesh Red Crescent Society volunteer rescued the woman in a critical condition and took her to the emergency department of Dhaka Medical College Hospital where the on-duty doctor declared her dead at around 1:45 pm.
Talking to reporters at the DMCH, the doctor said the woman was caught between two passenger buses—N Mallick Paribahan and Aram Paribahan in front of Golap Shah Mazar.
Abdul Baset, the husband of the victim, said, "My daughter Sumaiya, who is sick, came to Dhaka from Munshiganj with her mother around 7 am on Sunday."
From there they were supposed to catch a Mirpur-bound bus to go to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital for Sumaiya's treatment. But Sumaiya crossed the road first soon after she got down from the bus and her mother Parveen met her fate while trying to cross the road, Baset said.
Parveen was the mother of two daughters. The family resides in Sirajdikhan upazila under Munshiganj district. Her husband runs a clothing business in Dhaka.
DMCH Police Camp In-charge Inspector Bachhu Mia said the body was sent to the hospital morgue for autopsy.
