New Delhi: A Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) has awarded a compensation of over Rs 22 lakh to the kin of a bus driver who was crushed to death by another bus inside the Millennium Bus Depot, where he was standing in front of a CNG filling station. The tribunal, while awarding the compensation to the victim’s family, made an observation that the Millennium Bus Depot is a public place where buses move freely exposing large number of people to danger. 

MACT presiding officer Rajeev Bansal directed United India Insurance Company Ltd, insurer of the offending bus, to pay the amount and rejected its contention that the victim’s family should seek claim under the Employees State Insurance Act as the incident spot (the depot) was not a public place.

 

“The accident which took place in the present case would be ‘a public place’ as it was a huge and large bus depot where buses moved freely inside, exposing a large number of human beings to danger,” the tribunal said.
