The High Court asked Green Line Paribahan to pay Tk 5 lakh to Russel Sarker as monthly installment to clear the rest Tk 45 lakh compensation money to him who lost his leg after being hit by the company bus.
The HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahsan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order on Tuesday.
Green Line will have to pay Tk 5 lakh by the first seven day of every month and submit a report to the court by the 15th day of the month, the court said.
On Apr 10, the authorities of the bus operator only paid Russell Tk 500,000 after being ordered by the Hight Court to pay him Tk 5 million.
bdnews24.com adds: Expressing displeasure over non-payment of the compensation by the time set by the court earlier, one of the judges said, "Let’s see how the government patronises a person who tries to violate the court order by resorting to trickery.”
Russell, a former car driver, was seriously injured after he was hit by a Green Line bus on Jatrabari's Mayor Hanif Flyover on Apr 28, 2018.
Doctors had to amputate one of Russell's legs in order to save his life. The court ordered Green Line to pay for the expenses of the treatment of his other damaged leg.
