Staff Correspondent: Green Line Paribahan owner Md Alauddin has paid a portion of the Tk50 lakh compensation to victim Russel Sarker, who lost his leg in an accident in Dhaka.
The transport owner handed over Tk5 compensation to the victim around 3:00pm on Wednesday.
Rest of the amount will be paid within next one month, said Green Line Paribahan owner.
Earlier, the High Court ordered Green Line Paribahan to pay some money of compensation to Russel Sarker by 3.00pm today. The bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahsan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order.
On April 4, the HC ordered Green Line Paribahan to pay Tk 50 lakh to Russell 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 time frame.
Russel was knocked down by a Green Line bus near Mayor Mohammad Hanif Flyover in the capital's Dholaipar on April 28 last year.
