Staff Correspondent:  The High Court has expressed anger to Green Line Paribahan authorities for not implementing its order over compensating Russel Sarkar who lost his left leg after a bus of the paribahan ran over him in April last year.

The court has also ordered Green Line Paribahan to pay the remaining Tk 45 lakh to Russel Sarkar as per its earlier order in a month.

The HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order on Wednesday during hearing a writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Umme Kulsum seeking its order for compensating the victims.

The court asked Advocate Md Ozi-Ullah, lawyer for Green Line Paribahan, not to consider its generosity as a weakness. It will take appropriate legal action for implementing its order over the compensation of Russel Sarkar, the HC said.
