Road crash: Tk 1 lakh for 4 kids’ families

The High Court has ordered the government to compensate Tk 1 lakh to the families of four children who died in road crashes recently.

It also issued a rule asking why it should not direct the government to give Tk 50 lakh as compensation for the families of the children.

The High Court bench of Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil came up with the order and rule following a writ filed by rights organisations Children’s Charity Bangladesh Foundation and Bangladesh Legal Aid Services Trust.

The incidents of road crashes concerned with the writ petitions took place in Dhaka’s Keraniganj and Chattogram last month.

On January 28Fatima Afrin, a sixth grader and Afsar Hossain, 10, were crushed under a truck in Keraniganj when they were returning home on a motorcycle with their father.

The two other children are Kazi Mahmudur Rahman, 14, son of Kazi Abdur Rahman; Soma Barua, 18, daughter of RupayanBarua– both in Chattogram.
