Green Line Paribahan has been ordered to pay remainder of the Tk 45 lakh compensation to Russel Sarker, the man who lost a leg under a bus of the company back in April last year.
A High Court bench has ordered that the remainder of the compensation has to be paid within May 22. It warned of consequences to Green Line if the order is not carried out.
However, the bench said, if not in full, the company can pay any sum of money to Russel by this time. Notably, Green Line has already paid Tk 5 lakh of the Tk 45 lakh compensation.
The bench of FRM Nazmul Ahasan and KM Kamrul Kader came up with the order when Green Line sought more time for paying the full sum of compensation to Russel.
The company’s lawyer Advocate Md Ojiullah told the court that his client is sick and he needs more time to comply with the High Court’s existing order.
While adjourning today’s hearing, the bench fixed May 22 for passing further order.
Earlier on April 10, the Green Line Paribahan handed Tk 5 lakh to Russel who lost his left leg after a bus of the company ran him over in April last year.
