The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed a High Court order that directed Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) and Sajan Paribahan to pay Tk 1 crore in compensation to the family of Rajib Hossain.
A four member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain came up with the order.
