SC verdict on appeal over Rajib’s compensation Monday

  • Print

The Appellate Division will deliver its verdict on Monday on a petition filed by Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) seeking a stay on a High Court order directing it to provide half of Tk 1 crore as compensation to the family of deceased Titumir College student Rajib Hasan.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain fixed the date after hearing on the petition.

Earlier, on May 13, Chamber judge of the Appellate Division Justice Hasan Foez Siddique fixed May 17 for hearing on the petition.

On Thursday, BRTC filed the petition with the Appellate Division seeking a stay on the compensation slapped by the HC on it.

Rajib Hossain, who lost his right hand after it got stuck between two buses at Bangla Motor in the city on April 3, succumbed to his injuries at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 17.

On May 8, the HC bench of Justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and Justice AKM Zahirul Hoque issued an order to provide Tk 1 crore as compensation to the family of Rajib Hasan.

The High Court had directed owners of 'Sajan Paribahan' to pay Tk 50 lakh and BRTC the rest.

The court had also directed ‘SajanParibahan’ and BRTC to pay half of their amounts within this month and submit a report to the court on June 25, clearing that the compensation was paid or not.

BRTC only sought stay on the compensation of Tk 50 lakh which it was directed to pay by the High Court, said BRTC lawyer Muniruzzaman.

On April 4, the court issued a rule asking the authorities concerned to explain as to why directives should not be given to provide Tk 1 crore as compensation to RajibHasan.
