CHENNAI: In what could turn out to be a huge embarrassment for the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation Ltd (TNSTC), a court here has ordered attachment of most of its office equipment, including 240 computers, 200 AC machines and 400 tables, to compensate a city woman who was rendered paraplegic by an accident caused by rash driving of one its drivers in 2008.

The Motor Accidents Claims Tribunal here on Tuesday permitted S Thenmozhi, a resident of Anna Nagar, to attach the TNSTC properties while hearing an execution petition she had filed. The Salem division of the state-run transport corporation had failed to pay Thenmozhi the `57.9 lakh compensation even a year after the tribunal’s order.

The TNSTC failed to act on the direction, neither filing an appeal nor paying the compensation as ordered by the tribunal.

Meanwhile, the compensation compounded to nearly `74.7 lakh, including original award and interest.
