Two people were injured after a wall in front of the canteen counter at Kabi Jasimuddin Hall of Dhaka University suddenly collapsed on Monday.
The incident occurred around 1:30 pm when the students were having lunch, said Mobarak Hossain the canteen manager.
Both the injured were outsiders, confirmed the hall authority.
A canteen boy said, “It was the peak time and we were serving meals to students when the tiny wall in front of the canteen counter collapsed.”
Some resident students of the hall said, “As the wall was small in size and it fell back no major casualties occurred but the scene could’ve been different if it collapsed on opposite side.”
We visited the canteen along with an engineer immediately after the accident said Professor Dr. Mohammad Abdur Rashid, provost of Kabi Jasimuddin Hall.
A five-member probe committee led by Professor Mohammad Jahirul Islam was formed to investigate the incident, he said.
The committee was asked to submit a report within three working days, said Dr. Rashid.
