Staff Correspondent: The High Court (HC) has ordered the Green Line Paribahan to give Rasel, who lost his left leg after a bus of the company ran him over in April last year, Tk 5 lakh every month until the rest Tk 45 lakh of compensation money is paid.

The court also asked the money to hand over Rasel by the date 7 of every month and to inform it over payment by the date 15.

The bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahsan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader came up with the order on Tuesday, after rejecting the appeal of lessening compensation.

Earlier on May 22, the court ordered the Green Line Paribahan to pay Rasel Tk 45 lakh within June 25. But they did not comply with court order and filed appeal to decrease compensation.

On April 4, the HC ordered Green Line to pay Tk 50 lakh to Rasel by April 10 and said it would pass an order for confiscation of its buses otherwise. Later, the Green Line paid Tk 5 lakh.

Rasel, 23, who was a driver, lost his left leg from below the knee after he was knocked down by a Green Line bus near Mayor Mohammad Hanif Flyover in the capital on April 28 last year.
