The Delhi Government is organising a condolence meeting in the memory of NDMC officer, late MM Khan, on Saturday. And during this occasion Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will present compensation cheques to the families of late Khan and NIA officer late Tanzil Ahmed.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, other Ministers and MLAs will also be present during the programme. Khan was killed in Johri Farm in May a few metres from his house when he was returning from his office. Two motorcycle-unidentified men had attacked him. He was rushed to a local hospital where doctors declared him brought death. Some twenty-four hours after the incident police were able to crack his case by arresting a few men, including an accused hotelier, in the case. However, the case sparked war of words between AAP and BJP as name of BJP leaders Maheish Girri and others were dragged into the case with Kejriwal demanding their arrest.
To defend himself Girri even sat on indefinite hunger strike outside Kejriwal’s residents for a few days. The MP has denied all the allegations.
AAP had announced Rs one crore compensation to Khan’s family. The Central Government has already released the promised Rs 25 lakh to Khan’s family. OKHLATIMES was the first portal to point out that AAP had not given compensation money to Khan.
Some local activists too had been raising the issue of late payment on the social media for some time.
In the case of NIA officer Ahmed, who was killed in a village in UP while returning from marriage party, the AAP had announced a compensation. Kejriwal had visited the Batla House graveyard where Ahmed was laid to rest with State honour. The main killers of Ahmed too have been nabbed a few days ago.
