The tribunal awarded Rs 62.38 lakh to the family of Saroj, who was working with the South Delhi Municipal Corporation as a safai karamchari, and Rs 5.10 lakh to her husband who was injured in the accident.

On July 17, 2017, the two-wheeler in which the 42-year-old victim and her husband Birjpal Singh were travelling, was hit by a tanker near Sainik Farms here, leading to her death.

MACT Presiding Officer Sameer Bajpai asked the United India Insurance to pay the compensation to Saroj's husband and their three children.

Singh, who was driving the two-wheeler, suffered permanent disability in his right leg.

The complaint filed by Singh alleged that the two were hit by a rashly driven tanker.
