I came across this man yesterday. He was sitting on the footpath on VIP road (near the Tourism Department) carefully adjusting the rocks he had placed on his legs. There were smaller pieces he used to make fine adjustments to weights. He was neither begging, nor seeking attention, but merely trying to treat himself.
He had apparently been hit by a bus, had gone to Mohakhali hospital, but received no treatment.
Al Amin injured in road accident went 2 Mohakhali hosp bt received no trtmnt. Puts rocks on legs 2 ease pain. #Dhaka twitter.com/shahidul/statu?
