Caritas mourns deaths of Bangladeshi colleagues in road accident

Caritas Bangladesh colleagues Sheshanto Tripura, Jacob Tripura and Rintu Chakma were killed on 14 January in a bus accident while traveling on a steep mountain road in eastern Bangladesh, where Caritas runs a food security programme.

Thirteen other passengers died at the scene and the survivors are in serious condition. Another staff member, Gunga Chandra Tripura, survived the accident but is gravely ill in a local hospital.

“The entire Caritas community joins Caritas Bangladesh in mourning this loss. We send our condolences to the families and colleagues of Sheshanto Tripura, Jacob Tripura and Rintu Chakma. We also pray for the swift and complete recovery of Gunga Chandra Tripura,” says Michel Roy, Secretary General of Caritas Internationalis.
