Give Russell Tk 5 lakh by July 28, HC orders Green Line

The High Court today directed the Green Line Paribahan to give Tk five lakh of first installment by July 28 to Russel Sarker, who lost his leg after one of its buses ran him over in April last year.

The court passed the order after Green Line Paribahan's lawyer Advocate Shah Monjurul Haque prayed for time for complying with its directive.

He told the court that he has been engaged as a lawyer for the bus service company recently and he is yet to properly communicate with the company.

The HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader fixed July 28 for passing further order on this issue.

On April 4 last year, Russel, 26, a car driver, lost his leg from below the knee after he was knocked down by a Green Line bus near Mayor Hanif Flyover. An altercation broke out between Russel and the bus driver over rear-ending his car. As Russel chased the bus, the bus driver ran him over. 

The bus service company is supposed to give more Tk 45 lakh to Russel in Tk 5 lakh installment per month but the company did not pay any installment after the HC passed the order on June 25.
