New Delhi: The Home Ministry today announced an ex-gratia of Rs 10 lakh to the next of kin of Delhi Police constable Subhash Chand Tomar, who died here.
An ex-gratia of Rs 10 lakh will be given to the family of Tomar in addition to the financial and other relief announced by the Delhi Police, a Home Ministry spokesperson said.
The 47-year-old constable, who was injured during violent protests at India Gate on Sunday, died yesterday after battling for life in a city hospital.
Tomar was posted in Karawal Nagar area and was called for maintaining law and order at India Gate area during the weekend protests over the gangrape of a 23-year-old girl.
The Delhi Police have booked eight people in constable Tomar’s case, which includes a member of Arvind Kejriwal‘s Aam Aadmi Party.
However, Kejriwal hit out at the government and the Delhi Police saying he was being framed for the death of constable Subhash Tomar. Kejriwal said, “There is not a single proof that the government has and they are only framing these youths.”
