Suprobhat Paribahan must pay Tk 10 lakh to Abrar's family

SC upholds HC order

The Supreme Court yesterday upheld a High Court order that directed Suprobhat Paribahan to pay Tk 10 lakh to the family of Abrar Ahmed Chowdhury, who was killed in a road crash on March 19.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order after dismissing a petition filed by Suprobhat Paribahan seeking stay on the HC order.

There is no merit in the stay petition of Suprobhat Paribahan, the apex court said in the order.  

Writ petitioner Barrister Ruhul Quddus Kazal told The Daily Star that Suprobhat Paribahan must pay Tk 10 lakh to Abrar's family immediately, following the SC order. 

Following the writ petition filed by Barrister Kazal, the HC on March 20 directed Suprobhat Paribahan to pay Tk 10 lakh in seven days to the family of Abrar, who was run over by a bus of the transport group, for meeting urgent expenses.

The court also issued a rule asking the authorities concerned of the government and Suprobhat Paribahan to explain why they should not be directed to pay Tk 5 crore to Abrar's family.
