Elevator Collapse

Petition seeks Tk 1 crore compensation for each injured

A writ petition was filed with the High Court seeking its directive on the government to give Tk 1 crore compensation  to each of the 14 people who were critically injured in an elevator collapse at Dhaka District and Sessions Judge Court on March 7.

Advocate Md Mahfuzur Rahman, executive member of Lawyers Family Welfare Association, submitted the petition, also praying to the HC to take appropriate legal action against those who are liable.

In the petition, he also requested the court to direct the government to replace the old elevator with a new one.

HC is yet to set any date for hearing on the petition.
