The pedestrians are actually seen standing near the divider for a minute or two to fetch money from their purse to pay the Rabibul just after getting down from the ladder. All this exchange of money is happening in the middle of a busy traffic. The video shows another man taking money from pedestrians. However the identity of that man is not established and he is still absconding.

According to a report by Malaysia Sun, the event occurred in front of the Roads and Highways Department headquarters at the Shimrail crossroads in Narayanganj, on the Dhaka-Chittagong Highway.
