My goal is to pin down people responsible for the air crash: Advocate

Just three days prior to the 10th anniversary of Mangaluru plane crash, one of the worst accidents in the history of Indian aviation that left 158 dead, Supreme Court has awarded a compensation of Rs 7,64,29,437 plus 9% interest per annum to the victim Mahendra Kodkani’s wife and children.

In 2018, National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission had directed Air India to pay ?2.95 crore as additional compensation to Kodkani’s wife and children. The Airlines had already paid ?4.4 crore to the parents and family members.
Mumbai-based Advocate Yeshwanth Shenoy said the compensation amount was the highest awarded to an individual accident victim and among the victims of the Mangaluru air crash.
Shenoy also represents the family of the ill-fated IX 812 aircraft pilot Captain Z?Glusica, who is being blamed for causing the crash.
“The case is in the final stages of hearing in Delhi High Court” Shenoy said.
