Punjab Cabinet Minister Vijay Inder Singla along with Punjab State Planning Board’s vice chairperson Rajinder Kaur Bhathal and other senior officials on Tuesday  handed over Rs six lakh cheque to Jagmail Singh’s family.

The compensation cheque was given to Jagmail’s mother Bhagwan Kaur and his widow Manjit Kaur in the presence of other family members.

Singla informed that the remaining amount of compensation would be given to the family on Jagmail’s bhog. The State Government has promised Rs 20 lakh compensation to the family.

“Such incidents are intolerable and Punjab Government stands with the family of the deceased,” said Singla while talking to the mediapersons.

He said that all efforts would be made to ensure stringent punishment to the culprits within three months. “Deceased’s widow would be provided a job by government. Besides, the State would provide Rs 1.25 lakh for the repair of the house of Jagmail Singh. The Government has also decided to provide free education up to graduation level to the deceased’s children studying in class ninth, sixth and first,” the Minister added.
