3 government officials held in contempt for failure to pay compensation to Jihad’s family
The High Court has held three government officials in contempt of court, after they failed to pay Tk20 lakh in compensation to the family of four-year-old Jihad, who died after falling into an abandoned well in Dhaka’s Shahjahanpur area in December 2014. The High Court bench of Justice Md Ashfaqul Islam and Justice KM Kamrul Kader issued the contempt rule on Thursday. The rule was issued against the director general of Bangladesh Railway, and the director general and a director of the Fire Service and Civil Defense Department. The officials were asked to respond to the ruling within two weeks. Barrister Md Abdul Halim of the Children’s Charity Bangladesh Foundation argued for the petition. He said: “A legal notice was sent to the officials on January 22. As they did not reply to the notice we asked the court’s attention for their contempt of court.” The High Court delivered a verdict on the case filed over the death of Jihad in October 2017, asking the government authorities concerned to pay Tk20 lakh as compensation to his parents.   This article was first published on banglatribune.com
