Delhi constable's family to get Rs 1 crore compensation
Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on Tuesday announced a compensation of Rs one crore to the family of traffic constable Mana Ram ,who had laid down his life while performing traffic duties on Saturday, reports said.
On Saturday, Mana Ram, 26, had stopped a car driven by 26-year-old Raman Kant at a West Delhi crossing, and asked him to take a detour.
This led to an argument and the driver reversed his car to escape, when the constable jumped on the bonnet to stop it.
The accused allegedly ran over Mana Ram dragging him for around 150 metres.
The constable was rushed to a hospital where he was declared dead.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who visited Delhi Police Headquarters on Monday, asked all the officers present to observe one minute silence in the memory of Late Ct. Mana Ram.
