Holding the companies responsible for Rajib’s death, High Court gives them two months to pay the compensation

The High Court has ordered the Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) and Sajan Paribahan to pay Tk50 lakh in compensation to the family of Rajib Hossain, who died after losing his hand in a road accident involving buses of these companies last year.

The bench of Justice JBM Hassan and Justice Md Khairul Alam issued the ruling on Thursday, after finding both companies responsible for Rajib’s death.

The lawyers of BRTC and Sajan Paribahan said they would appeal against the court order.

Rajib, a 20-year-old student of Government Titumir College, had lost a hand after getting caught between two speeding buses of these companies at Dhaka’s Karwan Bazar intersection on April 3.

He died from his injuries after spending two weeks in a coma at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 17.

On May 8, the court had ordered the bus companies to pay Tk1 crore to Rajib's family as compensation, which both BRTC and Sajan Paribahan challenged later.

The court on May 19 had fixed June 20 to deliver the verdict.

On Thursday, Rajib’s family members, including his brothers Mehedi Hasan Happy and Abdullah Hridoy and two aunts, were also present when the court issued the order.

Rajib's aunt Zahanara Begun said they only hoped the court’s order will be followed and implemented soon.
