Two 48-year-old men, one Indian and one Bangladeshi, have been ordered to pay a total of approximately Rs 90,018,436 (AED 400,000) for causing the death of two Saudi women in a road accident here in July.

According to a newspaper report, the two men have been ordered by a court here to pay the blood money to the family of the victims who were killed in a car accident in the Al-Barsha area of Dubai on July 3.

“Dubai Traffic Court was told the men, one from Bangladesh and the other from India, both 48, drove their cars recklessly on the day of the incident,” The National report said, adding that both women died shortly after the collision.

Four other members of the family were moderately injured.

According to the report, the Bangladeshi man stopped his car in the middle of the main road and started reversing.

“The Indian, who was in another car, failed to see the vehicle and rammed into it. Both cars then hit a third car, with a family from Saudi Arabia inside,” said the report.

The report says the drivers were referred to court on charges of causing wrongful death, causing injuries, and damaging one another’s cars.

The court found them guilty.

"The court cancelled the Bangladeshi’s license for three months, and ordered him to cough up a 10,000 dirhams fine and 320,000 dirhams in blood money."

 

“The driver from India was fined AED 2,000 (approximately Rs 45,092) and ordered to pay AED 80,000 (approximately Rs 18,03,683) in blood money."

New Delhi, Feb 6: Jammu and Kashmir has been turned into Afghanistan by the BJP which is using bulldozers to demolish the homes of poor and marginalised under the ongoing anti-encroachment drive, former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti alleged Monday.

Addressing a press conference here, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief appealed to Opposition leaders in the country not to be a mute spectator to the "atrocities being committed by the BJP".

She alleged the BJP is using its brute majority to weaponize everything and "bulldoze" the Constitution.

"Palestine is still better. At least people talk. Kashmir is becoming worse than Afghanistan the way bulldozers are being used to demolish homes of people. What is the purpose of demolishing small houses of people," she said.

Mehbooba said that according to the government even the centuries-old Shankaracharya Temple and cantonment built by the erstwhile Maharaja are also on encroached land.

The PDP leader said Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha may claim that the houses of poor will not be touched during the anti-encroachment drive but his message is not being heard on the ground as dwellings even with tin sheds are being demolished.

She said the initial call for 'Ek Samvidhan, Ek Vidhan, Ek Pradhan' has given way to 'one country, one language, one religion' where there is no Constitution.

Voice of anyone speaking about the Constitution is being crushed, she said.

"Was removal of Article 370 in accordance with the Constitutional provisions?," she asked.
