Death of CDA employee in accident: US embassy wants patch up with family
ISLAMABAD, Feb 16: Officials from the US embassy on Sunday will visit the house of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) employee who was killed in an accident involving one of their vehicles, it has been learnt.
The family of the deceased has invited leader of the CBA union in the CDA to join them in holding talks with the embassy officials.
An administrative assistant of the US embassy driving a land-cruiser (MK-927) hit two motorbike riders on Thursday.
One of them, Muzammil Shah, a lift operator at Parliament Lodges, died while the other, Shozab Raza, (supervisor) was injured.
The injured has been shifted to the Capital Hospital.
ASI Shabir Ahmed, the investigating officer of the case, told Dawn that he had recorded the statement of the injured on Saturday.
He said the injured was still in the hospital so his medical report could not be issued.
As soon as we get the medical report, the challan will be prepared and submitted to the court, he added.
Superintendent of police (city) Mohammad Ilyas said he had learnt that the embassy was trying to have a patch-up with the family of the deceased.
He said he had instructed his officials to keep away from the process because police did not want to give the impression that they were a party in the negotiations.
Chaudhry Yaseen, the general secretary of the CBA union, said Mohammad Shah, the father of the deceased, had informed him that officials from the US embassy wanted to meet him on Sunday.
“Mr Shah has requested me that I should participate in the meeting because both Muzammil and Raza were the employees of the CDA.”
He said he had learnt that the family of the deceased would get Rs300,000 from the CDA.
The union will also help the two families. “I will try to get better compensation from the US embassy for the family,” he said.
