New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced that the Cabinet has approved for an honorary amount of Rs 1 crore to the family of murdered Intelligence Bureau (IB) officer Ankit Sharma this week.
Kejriwal tweeted, ” IB Officer Late Ankit SHarma was brutally killed in Dehi violence. We had declared an honorary amount of Rs 1 crore to his family. The Cabinet has approved for the same today. The approval was delayed due to COVID-19. We are hopeful that the family of the deceased will get the amount in this week.”
दिल्ली दंगों में IB अफसर स्वर्गीय अंकित शर्मा जी की बहुत ही दर्दनाक हत्या हुई थी। उनके परिवार के लिए हमने ₹1 करोड़ की सम्मान राशि का एलान किया था। आज उस निर्णय को कैबिनेट ने मंजूरी दी है। करोना के चलते इसमें देर हो गयी। उम्मीद है इसी हफ़्ते उनके परिवार को राशि मिल जाएगी।
