    The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) today ordered the Punjab Government to pay Rs 2.72-crore compensation to the kin of 109 persons who had died in custody during militancy, holding that the state was liable to make monetary amends for infringement on their right to life.

    The state government was directed to pay Rs 2.5 lakh to the kin of each victim in the three police districts of Amritsar, Majitha and Tarn Taran within two months through the district magistrates, who would ensure disbursement of the money through the sub-divisional magistrates concerned.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
