United Hospital Fire: SC stays HC order to pay Tk 30 lakh each to families

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court yesterday stayed for eight weeks the January 11 High Court order that directed United Hospital authorities to pay Tk 30 lakh as initial payment to each of the families of four victims, who were killed in a fire at its isolation unit on May 27 last year, in 15 days.

Chamber judge of the Appellate Division Justice Md Nuruzzaman passed the order following a petition filed by the United Hospital authorities seeking a stay on the HC directive.

The hospital authorities sought the stay as the HC passed the order without assessing the damage and without hearing the rule, Kazi Ershadul Alam, a lawyer for United Hospital, told The Daily Star.
