The court also adjourned the hearing on this regard till November 17

The Supreme Court has ordered private transport company Sajan Paribahan to pay Tk10 lakh compensation to road accident victim Rajib Hossain within a month.

The four justice bench of the Appellate Division, headed by the Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order on Sunday.

The court also adjourned the hearing on this regard till November 17.

Barrister Ruhul Kuddus Kajol was present at the hearing on behalf of Rajib.

Rajib, a 20-year-old student of Government Titumir College, lost a hand after getting caught between two speeding buses at Dhaka’s Karwan Bazar intersection on April 3.

He died from his injuries after spending two weeks in a coma at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 17.

On May 8, the High Court ordered the bus companies, Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) and Sajan Paribahan, to pay Tk1 crore to Rajib's family as compensation, which both challenged later.

The court on May 19 fixed June 20 to deliver the verdict.

On June 20, the court ordered the bus companies to pay Tk50 lakh in compensation to the victim's family. 

Later, Sajan Paribahan sought a stay order from the chamber judge court of the Appellate Division.

The chamber judge stayed the High Court order and fixed Sunday's date for the hearing.
