No compensation if police firing victims were involved in violence : CM Yediyurappa


Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Dec 25, 2019: The Chief Minister who had last Sunday announced a compensation of Rs 10 lakh each to the families of the two men killed in police firing, in a surprising u-turn has now said that the government  cannot give even a rupee as compensation to the  families if the two are accused in the violence case.

yeddyurappa2Speaking to reporters at Circuit House here on December 25, Tuesday morning, Yediyurappa said it would be an unpardonable offence to provide compensation if the two were found to be involved in violence. There is a suspicion that they too were part of the violent mob, the CM said adding investigation is underway.

Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje who also spoke, said the government had only announced compensation and has not handed over the amount.  No compensation will be given if they are found to have involved in violence, she stated categorically.

It may be recalled here  that Nausheen and Abdul Jaleel were killed in the December 19 police firing on Citizenship Amendment Act protestors.
