SC order over compensation to Rajib family May 21

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court will deliver its order on May 21 on two appeal petitions filed challenging the High Court order that directed the BRTC and Sajan Paribahan authorities to pay Tk 1 crore compensation to the family members of Rajib Hossain, the college student who lost his hand and died in a road crash.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain fixed the date after holding hearing on the petitions filed by BRTC and Sajan Paribahan.

During hearing, Advocate Pankaj Kumar Kundu, counsel for Sajan Paribahan, told the court that his clients were not responsible for the incident and they cannot give the compensation.

Advocate ABM Bayezid appeared for BRTC during the hearing, who was also told the court that his client was not responsible for the incident.

BRTC filed the petition on May 10 seeking stay on the High Court order that asked it to pay Tk 25 lakh within one month to Rajib’s family. Sajan Paribahan recently filed another petition with seeking stay on the order that asked it to pay Tk 50 lakh in compensation.

Earlier on May 8, the HC ordered state-run BRTC and Sajan Paribahan to pay Tk 1 crore to the family of Rajib Hossain, a student of Govt Titumir College, who lost his right arm in a collision of the two buses and consequently died.

The bus owners have been asked to pay Tk 50 lakh each within a month to the account of Rajib’s aunt Jahanara Begum and their relative customs officer Omar Faruk with Sonali Bank’s principal branch.

The HC said that the bus owners will have to pay Tk 50 lakh within a month and that it would fix the next date for the payment of the remaining amount after receiving a compliance report.

The HC bench comprising Justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and Justice A K M Zahirul Hoque also directed the bus owners to submit a report to this court by June 25 after complying with the order. The HC also fixed June 24 for the next hearing. After two weeks in coma, third-year student Rajib Hossain died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on April 17.

Rajib lost the hand after it got stuck between two speeding buses of BRTC and Sajan Paribahan, which were trying to overtake each other on April 3.
