The father of an Emirati child who was killed in a runover accident near her home in Ajman, has decided to donate the Dh200,000 blood money to charity.

Sheikha Hassan Bilal died in an unfortunate manner in February when she was runover by her school bus as she was crossing the road in front of her school bus after being dropped off near her home after school.

The Court of First Appeal in Ajman recently upheld the sentence against the driver. The Asian was jailed for six months and ordered to pay Dh200,000 blood money to the family of Sheikha Hassan. Investigations revealed that the driver did not abide by traffic and safety rules.

The father entrusted his brother to receive the blood money and hand it over to a charitable organisation to build a mosque and dig wells in a needy country in memory of his daughter.

Hassan Bilal said: “It was agreed with one of the charities operating in Ajman that upon receiving the blood money, it would be deposited in their account to help them build a mosque and dig wells in a needy country.”

Hassan’s brother has been entrusted to carry out legal formalities and oversee implementation of five charitable projects in memory of the soul of Sheikha Hassan in a needy country.
