Mangalore air tragedy: Only eleven claims settled so far
Mangalore: Nearly four months after an
air tragedy claimed 158 lives when an Air India Express
crashed near Bajpe airport here, the agency appointed to
settle compensation claims has so far succeeded in settling
only 11 claims.
Mulla and Mulla Company, a Mumbai-based firm entrusted
with the task of negotiating with families of victims, had
finalised claims in respect of 11 cases and is in the process
of settling another, the firm`s representative H D Nanavathi
told reporters after its third sitting held here.
She said 18 families have approached the firm for
compensation. Three have sought time to come back with their
views after consultation with their relatives, she said.
Compensation has to be worked out in each case
separately on the basis of proof of loss, Nanavathi said.
She however refused to disclose the quantum of
compensation paid so far.
To a question on the reason for the May 22 crash, she
said "those issues are not concerned to my firm".
The Mangalore-bound Air India Express plane from Dubai
crashed and caught fire after it overshot the runway while
landing at the airport.
