The High Court again extended one week's time for the Greenline authorities to pay the Tk 5 lakh condensation per month to private car driver Rasel Sarkar, who lost his legs crushed under a Greeline bus. The court is fixed the next Sunday for hearing of the case again.

Earlier, Greenline’s new lawyer Shah Manjurul Haque requested more time to the court. The Hogh Court bench, comprising Justice FM Nazmul Ahsan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader, grants one week time again.

Advocate Khondaker Shamsul Haque Reza was in the court on behalf of Rasel while Deputy Attorney General Barrister ABM Abdullah Al Mahmud Bashar was in favor of the state. At this time, Rasel Sarkar was present in court with his family.

Earlier, the High Court had ordered the Greenline authorities to pay Tk 5 lakhs to Rasel of the first installment. Greenline authorities have appointed new lawyers for the case. On July 16, lawyer Aji Ullah backdown himself from the case. On that day, the court fixed July 21 for hearing the case.

Greenline Authority lawyer Shah Manjurul Haque told the court, "I am newly appointed in this case. I need time to prepare myself. He requested the court to arrange the hearing of the case after the court vacation.”
