Sukma attack: TN CM announces Rs. 20 lakh ex-gratia to slain CRPF jawan's family

Chennai (Tamil Nadu) , Mar. 12 : Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palanisami on Sunday announced Rs. 20 lakh solatium to the family of Central Reserve Police Fire (CRPF) jawan K. Shankar, who lost his life in Sukma maoist attack yesterday.

In view of the Sukma maoist attack, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will not celebrate Holi this year.

After paying a visit to Narayana Hospital in Raipur where the CRPF personnel, injured in a Maoist attack, are undergoing treatment, Rajnath yesterday announced that Rs. one crore would be provided as compensation to the deceased.

"We have decided that a total compensation to kin of the soldiers who were killed in the attack shouldn't be less than Rs. 1 crore under any circumstances," Singh said.

He also assured that the country would not let the soldier's sacrifice go in vain and said that a heavy retaliation would be given to the Maoists.

"We want to assure the country that martyrdom of our soldiers will not go in vain. We are confident that we'll be able to control the activities of Maoists," Singh said.

At least 12 personnel of the 219-battalion from the CRPF were killed and six others critically injured in a Maoist attack near Bhejji in Sukma district.
