Staff Reporter :
The High Court (HC) on Tuesday ordered Green Line Paribahan authorities to pay Tk 5 lakh to Russel Sarker as monthly installment to clear the rest Tk 45 lakh compensation money to him.
Russel, 26, a car driver of a power company, lost his left leg below the knee after he was knocked down by the bus near the Mayor Hanif Flyover in the capital's Dholaipar on April 28 last year.
Green Line Paribahan will have to pay Tk 5 lakh by the first seven days of every month and submit a report to the court by the 15th day of the month, the court said.
The HC bench of Justice F R M Nazmul Ahasan and K M Kamrul Kader passed the order while hearing a writ petition filed by the company in this regard yesterday.
At the beginning of the hearing, Green Line Paribahan's lawyer Md Oziullah prayed to the court to reduce the amount of Tk 50 lakh compensation and also sought the court's order to pay Russel through installments.
The Paribahan, however, did not mention any amount of the reduction money.
During the hearing, the court said it cannot change this order as it was upheld by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court.
The court, however, expressed dissatisfaction as the Green Line did not comply with its order.
The company would have offered Russel a job as it runs businesses of crores taka but the Green Line Paribahan's behaviour towards him was inhuman, the court said. After the order was delivered, lawyer Oziullah said that it has already paid Tk 5 lakh to Russel. And now the company has to pay Tk 45 lakh more to Russel through monthly installments as per the court order.
Earlier on April 10, Green Line Paribahan gave a cheque of Tk five lakh to Russel Sarkar. Md Alauddin, the owner of Green Line Paribahan, handed over the cheque to Russel Sarkar inside the courtroom of the High Court.
On that day, the HC asked the Green Line Paribahan owner to pay the rest amount of Tk 45 lakh to Russel in one month's time. At the same time, the court ordered the bus company to take initiative for Russel's treatment with their cost.
On March 12, the High Court ordered Green Line Paribahan to pay the compensation to Russel Sarkar within 14 days.
Green Line Paribahan authority appealed to the Supreme Court against the HC order. But the four-member bench led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain on March 31 upheld the HC order and the HC on the same day revised its order and asked the company to pay the compensation money by Wednesday April 3.
On April 4, the HC ordered Green Line Paribahan to pay Tk 50 lakh to Russel by April 10, saying that it would pass an order for confiscation of buses if the transport company did not pay the money within the given time.
The HC also asked the company not to sell tickets for April 11 if it failed to pay the money.
Earlier on May 14 last year, the High Court issued a rule asking as to why private car driver Russel should not get Tk one crore as compensation. Green Line was asked to respond to the rule within four weeks.
Russel was first taken to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital with a severed leg, and transferred to Square Hospitals and later to Apollo Hospitals.
After being informed, police impounded the bus and detained Kabir from near the National Press Club. However, Kabir is now on bail in the case filed over the incident.
