Her mother and sister were injured when they tried to save her
Aminul Tufan is 9 years old.
Instead of going to school, he sells flowers in front of Rangpur’s Chikli canal.
Sometimes, he begs for money.
When Hello asked him why he was hawking flowers instead of going to school, he said:
“My father, Delwar, passed away. My mother, Rehana, sells dried fish to provide for our family. I live at the station with my mother and elder sister.”
“I ran away from school. I don’t like going. Instead, I sit in front of Chikli and sell flowers with my elder sister. Sometimes I beg people for money. They can give us some if they want.”
