JAMMU: A group of protesters gathered in Nai Basti Area of Jammu and blocked the National Highway for around one hour. The protest was held to demand compensation for killing of the lady in Kud Militant attack which took place on Monday.
The family of the deceased had allegedly been ‘misguided’ regarding the compensation procedure. A miscreant misinformed the family saying, no compensation will be given to the family in lieu of her death, after which the family gathered a crowd and blocked the National Highway.
But soon enough the family was apprised that any civilian who gets killed in a militant attack is paid due compensation as per govt. ruling, following which the protesters dispersed from the spot.
