Chittagong Development Authority (CDA) yesterday decided to compensate the families of those killed or injured in the collapse of three flyover girders in the port city on November 24.
Each family of the dead will be given Tk 2 lakh, the injured who lost their limbs Tk 1 lakh and the rest with less severe injuries Tk 50 lakh, CDA Chairman Abdus Salam yesterday told The Daily Star.
He, however, could not provide numbers of those that lost limbs and those that sustained minor injuries. â€œWe will collect the list [of the injured] from Chittagong Medical College and Hospital,â€ he said.
The decision was taken at an emergency board meeting, the first such meeting of the CDA since the accident.
Twelve people were killed and 15 injured when three concrete girders of the flyover at Bahaddarhat collapsed on a makeshift kitchen market.
