Agartala, 2nd May 2024:   The small town of Melaghar was rocked by the sudden death of a school student, leading to public outcry and allegations of medical malpractice. The incident took place when Md. Mainuddin, accompanied by his cousin Md. Rakib Kulu, was involved in a collision with a bus near Battali Langta Darga while riding a bike.
