Green Line asked to pay Russel Sarker in full

The High Court (HC) has asked Green Line Paribahan, a private bus company, to pay rest of Tk 45 lakh compensation to Russel Sarker, the man who lost a leg under a bus of the company back in April last year.

A High Court bench on Wednesday ordered the bus company to pay remainder of the compensation within May 22.

The bench also said the company can pay any sum of money to Russel by this time, if not in full.

Mentionable that Green Line has already paid Tk 5 lakh of the Tk 45 lakh compensation.

The bench of FRM Nazmul Ahasan and KM Kamrul Kader issued the order when Green Line sought extra time for paying the full sum of compensation to Russel.

The company’s lawyer Advocate Md Ojiullah informed the court that his client is ill and he needs more time to comply with the High Court’s existing order.

While adjourning today’s hearing, the bench fixed May 22 for passing further order.
