A landmark ruling!

The High Court's order for concerned parties to compensate the family of celebrated filmmaker Tareque Masud who was killed in a road accident in 2011 is a landmark verdict in our country's history. This will hopefully set a precedent for other victims or their families to receive compensation for their losses as well.

The ruling was apparently based on the Motor Vehicles Ordinance, 1983. However, what is unclear is how the compensation amount was determined, so I think it will benefit the public going forward if the authorities made that clear.
