Compensation paid to Venkatesh’s family

Compensation paid to Venkatesh’s family

SRINGERI: The State Government has given Rs 2 lakh compensation to the bereaved family of shopkeeper Venkatesh.

Chief Whip in the Legislative Assembly Jeevaraj, who handed over the cheque to the family, said that the Government would give another Rs 3 lakh to the family in a week. Naxals had killed Venkatesh on Sunday, alleging that he had informed the police about the hideout of naxal Dinakar, who was later killed in an encounter.

When the body was handed over to the relatives at Sringeri Government Hospital, the people assembled there did not allow the body to be shifted to the native village for cremation till compensation was paid. Jeevaraj arrived at the hospital and handed over the cheque to the family, after which the body was moved.
