Chandigarh, June 17

Extending condolences to the families of the four martyrs from Punjab, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Wednesday announced compensation along with a government job to the next of the kin of the deceased.

Two get Rs12 lakh relief

The families of Naib Subedar Mandeep Singh and Naib Subedar Satnam Singh would be given Rs12 lakh compensation each in line with the government policy as both of them were married, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister expressed grief and shock at the violent clash in Galwan Valley of Ladakh, which had wiped out the lives of these four brave men, whose sacrifice for the nation would not be forgotten. The loss suffered by the families was immeasurable and could not be compensated with material things, but the compensation and jobs would help alleviate some of their sufferings, said Capt Amarinder, while paying tributes to the martyrs.

The Chief Minister said Cabinet Ministers would represent the state government at the martyrs' funerals, which would be held with full Army honours at their native villages. He directed the respective district administrations to make all arrangements, befitting the occasion, for receiving the bodies of the fallen soldiers. While one family member each would be given a government job in all four cases, the families of Naib Subedar Mandeep Singh and Naib Subedar Satnam Singh would be given Rs 12 lakh compensation each in line with the government policy on account of their being married. — TNS
