The High Court on Thursday ordered two bus companies to give a total of Tk 5 million in compensation to the family of Government Titumir College student Rajib Hasan within two months.

Rajib had lost one of his arms after he was trapped between two buses in the capital's Banglamotor area on April 4 last year. He succumbed to his injuries on April 17 that year.

The bench of Justice JBM Hassan and Justice Md Khairul Alam issued the order for compensation after holding the authorities concerned of the two buses responsible for the incident, reports UNB.

The owners of 'Swajan Paribahan' will have to pay Tk 2.5 million while Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BTRC) will pay the remaining amount, the court said.

On April 4, the court sought explanations from the authorities concerned as to why directives should not be issued to provide Tk 10 million as compensation to Rajib.
