Jayalalithaa orders Rs.1 crore compensation to constable

Chennai, June 20 (IANS) Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa on Monday announced a solatium of Rs.1 crore to the family of a policeman who lost his life while nabbing chain snatchers.

Jayalalithaa said a police team comprising a Sub-Inspector and Head Constables Munusamy and Dhanapal tried to nab suspected members of a chain snatching gang in Krishnagiri district on June 15.

But the suspects stabbed Munusamy who died in a hospital, she told the state assembly.

She said though a solatium of Rs.500,000 was ordered to be paid to Munusamy’s family under the existing rules, it was felt that the amount was not sufficient.
