Oct 7, 2018-
Families of the deceased and injured in Jorayal bus accident, a crash that killed 29 people and injured 68 others four years ago, complained that they have not received any compensation and relief so far.According to the families, they are unnecessarily hassled by the insurance companies in hopes of getting the insurance amount. Prakash Shahi, nephew of Krishna Shahi who was fully disabled in the accident, said the insurance company has not provided them any compensation even though they have the necessary documents.
The critically injured victims claimed that they are deprived of the necessary treatment.
“The transportation committee stopped providing treatment expenses. Even the family members stopped supporting me,” said Kalpana Bista, a victim who lost her husband and daughter in the incident. She added that she has not received any compensation and relief so far. Kalpana, who sustained spinal injuries in the accident, is now in the Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre in Kavre. Chief of Jorayal Rural Municipality Durga Ojha said the rural municipality repeatedly urged the authorities concerned to provide compensation and relief to the victims but to no avail. (PR)
