The father of the teenage driver was reprimanded by the court

A teenager arrested for recklessly driving a rickshaw and injuring three passengers, including a five-month-old baby, has been sent to a correctional facility. The judge reprimanded the father of the accused teenager in court on Monday.

The 15-year-old son of a Supreme Court lawyer was produced before a Dhaka court in connection with the incident on Bailey Road in the capital and police took him into custody for questioning. His father Tarzel Hossain applied for bail on his behalf, said trainee lawyer Hasibuzzaman.

Judge Al-Mamun of Dhaka’s No. 8 Women and Child Abuse Suppression Tribunal and Children’s Court ordered the teenager to be sent to the Tongi Juvenile Development Center in Gazipur.

During the hearing, the judge showed the teenager and said, ‘He is not old enough to drive a car. No license. Why did you give him a car? Why is his father so irresponsible? ‘

Asked who registered the car, the teenager said the car was in his father’s name. Prosecutor Jasmine Akhter then told the judge, “The second-hand car was bought six months ago. His father is a lawyer in the Supreme Court.

Asked if Judge Tarzel had a license to drive his son’s car, he said no, “he did not know the car his son was driving.”

At that time, the judge told him, “You should be punished.”

The judge told the teenager, a 10th grader at Wills Little Flower School in Cockrell, “there’s still a lot of time left. Grow up, you can drive a lot of cars. You are the son of one. The child you injured is also someone’s son. How much time, how many days are left, is life so short? ‘

Although the remand application was rejected considering the child, the judge allowed one day interrogation in the presence of the officer in charge of the juvenile development center.

According to the case filed at Hatirjheel Police Station, Shahjalal Islami Bank official Fakhrul Hasan, a resident of Magbazar area of ​​the capital, came out with his five-month-old son on Friday afternoon. He was traveling in a rickshaw from Magbazar to Ramna Park via Bailey Road. On the way, a reckless speeding private car on Bailey Road pushed the rickshaw carrying them from behind. Rickshaw puller Anwar Islam was also seriously injured along with the two. After the incident, the police got a call to the National Emergency Service number 999 and rescued the three and admitted them to the hospital.

The next day at around 8:30 am, the teenager took his mother by bus to his grandfather’s house in Gangni, Meherpur. From there he went to his aunt’s house in Alamdanga, Chuadanga and hid himself.

Later, the Tejgaon division police of DMP arrested the teenager with the help of the two police stations concerned.
