Money creates rift in slain cop's family

 A cash compensation of Rs 50 lakh to the widow of Uttar Pradesh DSP Zia-ul-Haque has created a rift in the family with the slain cop’s father demanding a share in the money.

Haque was killed by a mob at Kunda in Pratapgarh.

Haque’s father Shamsul said Parveen Azad has not been sharing the financial help with the family.

“Being the father of Zia-ul-Haque, I should get preference over others in sharing the compensation money. Parveen comes after me,” Shamsul said.

He added that the family had made a lot of sacrifices in Haque’s up bringing.
 “We suffered ourselves but ensured Haque gets good education.”

Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav had given two cheques of Rs 25 lakh each to Parveen when he had visited Deoria.

Earlier, there was a squabble in the family over the jobs being offered by the state government.

Shamsul had objected to the list given to the district administration by Parveen.

Claims ignored

She had mentioned her parents’ family members name in the list, ignoring the claims of her husband’s family.

Shamsul said only his family members should be given jobs. He had also written to the district administration in this regard.

Compensations have been creating rift in the families of slain jawans as well.

The widow of a slain Central Reserve Police Force jawan had even approached police with a complaint alleging that her family members had threatened to kill her if she did not share the compensation money.
