Family members of little Sanjana fight over compensation

Parents of Saravana and Ashwini, who were killed in the building collapse at Gundappa Layout in Ejipura, on Friday clashed at Victoria Hospital over Rs 15 lakh compensation announced by the BBMP to the next of kin of the couple.

The couple's daughter Sanjana, who had suffered 60% burns, died on Thursday. The post-mortem was conducted on Friday and the body was handed over to her relatives.

The BBMP had asked the relatives to file an affidavit to claim the compensation of Rs 15 lakh.

 BBMP Mayor R Sampath Raj told DH, "The members of two families started quarrelling each other for compensation, I have told them to discuss with local corporator and come to a decision. If they resolve the issue amicably, we will distribute the compensation on Saturday itself, he said."
