The Dubai Police’s human rights department (HRD) has held a meeting with workers injured in a motorway accident on Emirates Road in May.
Thirteen people – nine from India and four from Bangladesh – were killed when a bus carrying 28 passengers crashed into the back of a stationary lorry. The bus was transporting labourers from their camp in Umm Al Quwain to Jebel Ali.
Lt Col Adel Al Kash, the HRD’s head of administrative affairs, said his meeting with the men was part of Dubai Police’s humanitarian initiatives aimed at supporting members of the public.
He praised the response of charitable institutions to a Dubai Police initiative that sought to help the families of the workers who were injured or killed in the accident.
Lt Col Al Kash expressed his sympathy for their relatives and gave assistance to the 12 men who attended the meeting. More info
