Enamul Haque had just completed his training and was supposed to join Dhaka Metropolitan Police on Wednesday. But a fatal road accident only a day before cut his life short at 27.
The victim, of Gazipur's Kaliganj, was to join the DMP as a sub-inspector.
The accident happened on Tuesday when an ambulance hit a motorbike carrying the victim and his cousin in the capital's Bijoy Sarani area. They were returning to Uttarkhan after visiting Enamul's ailing father at Dhaka Medical College Hospital, said Zane Alam Munshi, officer-in-charge of Sher-E-Bangla Nagar Police Station.
Enamul died at a city hospital yesterday.
His cousin Azizul Hakim, 24, is being treated at a hospital.
Enamul, son of a day labourer, graduated from Jagannath University and got enrolled in police department as a sub-inspector. He completed his training on January 28.
“He dreamt of becoming a police officer and worked hard for it. But everything ended just a day before his joining,” his uncle Nur E Alam Siddique said while talking to this correspondent over the phone.
He also demanded the immediate arrest of the ambulance driver and his punishment.
Victim's younger brother Mahidul Islam filed a case with Kafrul Police Station.
