Justice Served!

And it took 9 years to get it done. Even then, its a good sign. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that KESC is no longer govt. owned? Here’s what im going on about..

A court here ordered the Karachi Electric Supply Corporation (KESC) to pay Rs1.5 million compensation in damages to a boy who lost his right hand due to the negligence of the utility company staff.

    Given the way our judiciary works, the boy and his family should thank God that the proceedings took “only” 9 years. :-P

    Had read it in THE NEWS or DAWN.
    9 years is itself nothing less than a torture. The family must have well spend 1.5 million in expanses, what about that?

    i don’t believe this is the first case…..KESC has been paying millions in compensation…and McDonald’s is so famous for winning against the penniless…

    1.5 million is nothing, we need a hand of KESC director in return of a hand.

    child’s life = Rs 1.5 million
    New civic = Rs 1.5 million

    life is so cheap in this part of the world..

    doctor: childs hand : Rs. 1.5 million

    also, it could be that a New Civic is *too* expensive? :)

    that sort of thinking gets dangerous …why the hand of the kesc director only why not all forcing kesc employees also to sacrifice a hand too.the problem with this sort of thinking is that it snowballs…
