The Appellate Division on Thursday extended the stay order on a High Court directive that had asked to pay Tk 30 lakh to each of the families of four out of five victims killed in a fire at United Hospital in the capital on May 27.
A six-member bench, led by the Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order after hearing an appeal filed by the hospital authorities.
On July 21, Chamber Judge Justice Md Nuruzzaman stayed the High Court order.
Earlier on July 14, the HC directed the hospital authorities to pay the victims within 15 days.
