Korba, Chhattisgarh:

A district court judge in Chhattisgarh’s Korba stepped out of the four walls of a courtroom to award Rs 20 lakh compensation to a 42-year-old man, who had suffered paralysis after sustaining multiple injuries in a road accident in 2018.

The accident victim, Dwarika Prasad Kanwar, was unable to go to the courtroom due to his medical condition.

District and Sessions court judge BP Verma, who is also the chairman of the District Legal Services Authority, was hearing Kanwar’s accident compensation case during the National Lok Adalat on Saturday.

When he came to know about the medical condition of Mr Kanwar, the judge came out of the courtroom and went to the parking area of the court complex, where the victim was waiting in a vehicle, a government public relations officer said in a statement on Sunday.

Mr Kanwar’s lawyer PS Rajput and respondent insurance company’s advocate Ramnarayan Rathore accompanied the judge to the parking area, where he delivered the judgment. The judge ordered the insurance company to give a compensation of Rs 20 lakh to the victim, the official said.

Mr Kanwar had suffered multiple injuries after his car collided with a trailer in December 2018 at Manikpur area of Raigarh town in the district. He had suffered multiple injuries, including a fracture in the spinal cord, in the accident. After that he had also suffered paralysis. Due to this, he has been bed-ridden and is unable to move on his own.

Mr Kanwar demanded compensation from the insurer saying that his family suffered financially due to his accident.

After the judgement, the victim expressed his gratitude over the disposal of his case, which he said had been pending for the last three years.
