Tk. 50 crore damage suit filed against United Airlines

29 September,2014

RTNN News Desk: A Tk 50-crore damage suit was filed on Monday against the chairman and managing director of United Airways and five others.

Five passengers filed the case with a Dhaka court seeking compensation as they failed to go to Malaysia on September 24 following the private airliner's suspension of flights.

The United Airways suspended its all flight operation on September 24 for an indefinite period, after the private airline's new board failed to come up with plans to keep it afloat.

Three days after suspension of flight operational, the airliner resumed all flights on Saturday (September 27).

The plaintiffs are: Abu Bakar Siddique, a member of Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry; and his wife Nargis Akter, a businesswoman; Mokbul Hossain, proprietor of Weaving and Fabrics Ltd; Sohanur Rahman Selim, owner of Selim Enterprise and Ureka Multi-purpose Firm of Rod, Cement, Poultry and Fish; and Rafiqul Islam, editor of a daily newspaper, Biddasagor.

The five passengers bought tickets of a flight of the airliner on September 21 for flying to Malaysia.

Judge Fazle Elahi Bhuiyan of the First Joint District Judge’s Court of Dhaka fixed September 16 for hearing on whether it will accept the case or not.
