New Delhi, April 23 (IANS) A city court Wednesday awarded Rs.2.2 million compensation to an engineer who met with an accident near Gurgaon four years ago. Siddharth Jain, a mechanical engineer, met with an accident Nov 11, 2004 while he was going to his office in Gurgaon on his motorcycle. A truck hit him and sped away.
Jain was taken to a hospital. He suffered 40 percent disability due to which he lost his job.
“Keeping in mind the profession of the complainant, a compensation of Rs 2.2 million would meet the ends of justice,” ordered Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) Judge Swarn Kanta.
The judge observed that since Jain was a bright student and had a bright career ahead of him he is entitled for compensation from the truck owner and the insurance company.
