After a prolonged treatment for his head injuries, Rahul lodged a complaint with the tribunal seeking compensation, which ordered to pay Rs. 8.80 lakh in 2014.

As the Corporation again failed to obey the order, the tribunal directed the officials tor seize the bus, who attached Coimbatore-Mettupalayam bus from Saibaba Colony stand here and brought to the tribunal.
