Earlier, on July 30, the High Court directed the owners of Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan to provide Tk 5 lakh to each family of the two students.

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a High Court order directing the owners of Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan to provide Tk 5 lakh within one week to the families of each of the two students who were killed in a road crash on Airport Road on July 29.

Chamber Judge of the Appellate Division, Justice Hasan Foez Siddique, gave the order after hearing an appeal filed by the bus company owners.

Earlier, on July 30, the High Court directed the owners of Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan to provide Tk 5 lakh to each family of the two students.

The court also ordered the bus owners to bear all the costs of treatment of the nine students injured in the accident.

The chairman of the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) was directed to make sure that the order is executed.

The court also issued a rule seeking an explanation as to why directives should not be given to provide Tk 2 crore to each family as compensation and ensure people's safety in public transport through strictly implementing traffic rules. 

Secretaries to the Ministries of Home Affairs and Road Transport and Bridges, inspector general of police (IGP), Dhaka metropolitan police commissioner, its additional commissioner (traffic), Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA), and Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan authorities were asked to respond to the ruling.

The BRTA chairman was also asked to submit a report by August 12 on what steps they have taken to ensure the safety and security of commuters on roads, and on what basis public transport drivers are given driving licences.

Two students of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin School and College -- Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib -- were killed when a Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan bus ploughed through some students in front of Kurmitola General Hospital on Airport Road on July 29.
