Okhla teen Fahad disabled in road accident gets Rs 24.39 lakh compensation

It was July 5, 2016 when an Okhla teenager was on his way to his college in Noida that he met with an accident. According to the petition, a rashly driven car hit him from backside and dragged him to a distance when he was crossing road right outside the main gate of the college. He was immediately rushed to a hospital. And after undergoing treatment for a month his right leg was amputated.

A case was filed and today report has surfaced that the teenager Fahad Ahmed Siddiqui has been awarded over Rs 24 lakh by a Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT).

PTI reported that the insurer of the car, the State Bank of India (SBI) General Insurance Company Ltd, has been directed by the MACT Presiding Officer Madhu Jain to pay Rs 24,39,350 to Fahad .

In 2016 Fahad was 19 years old.

The tribunal, while deciding the case in favour of the victim, relied on his medical report which said he suffered 85 per cent permanent disability in his right leg, which had to be amputated, reported PTI.

It has been reported that initially the accused driver-cum-owner refused to take responsibility of the accident and did the opposite as he put the blame on the victim for the road negligently.

However, MACT was not convinced and relying on documents available on record gave the verdict.
