Mumbai: The Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) has awarded Rs 26 lakh compensation to a former employee of Abu Dabhi Airport and his wife, who were injured in a road accident in 2012.

The couple had demanded Rs 1 crore compensation each, after suffering disability due to the accident in Navi Mumbai.

The accident happened on the night of June 13, 2012, when the Yasin Abdul Hamid Mukadam and his wife Shamin Mukadamare were going on the Vashi-Belapur Palm Beach road. The jeep coming from Belapur took a sudden turn and hit the couple's bike. The couple sustained grievous injuries in the accident.

The couple told the tribunal they incurred huge medical expenses and had to remain away from work- temporarily or permanently- that led to huge financial losses.  

The owner of the jeep was not represented and the case was decided ex-parte against him. Advocate appeared for the insurance company and contested the claim saying the applicants had not produced the requisite documents to substantitate their claims.

In the order given two days back, member of the MACT, K D Vadane, directed the respondents to jointly pay the compensation to the couple.
