Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday (February 28) announced a compensation of ₹25,000 in cash for those whose houses were burnt during the communal violence in northeast Delhi earlier this week.
Addressing a press conference, the chief minister said the Delhi government has also set up nine shelters for the riot-affected people and is distributing food among them.
For assistance of the violence-hit people, Kejriwal said the government has appointed 18 magistrates and four night magistrates.
A day earlier, the chief minister had announced an ex-gratia of ₹10 lakh for those killed during the violence, besides a compensation of ₹5 lakh to those seriously injured.
He also said his government will bear the expense of treatment of the injured who are admitted in private hospitals.
