TNSTC bus attached

The Additional Sub Court officials on Wednesday attached a TNSTC, Kumbakonam Division, bus for non-payment of compensation to an accident victim.

R. Karthikeyan (27) of South Manikkapuram near Krishnarayapuram was hit by a TNSTC bus on the Velliyanai-Jagadabi road on October 7, 2006 in which he suffered injuries. He filed a petition in the Principal Sub Court here in 2007 and was awarded a compensation of Rs. 5.18 lakh in 2009.

Since the TNSTC failed to pay the compensation, the victim filed an execution suit in the Additional Sub Court. The Additional Sub Judge Y. Gladstone Blessed Tagore awarded Rs. 6.5 lakh as compensation with interest.
