Jaipur, Jun 11 (PTI) The Rajasthan government has announced compensation of Rs 50 lakh each for the two families from the state who lost their members in Sunday’s terror attack in JK’s Reasi, besides two contractual jobs for family members and allotment of dairy booths. Officials said this on Tuesday.

The decision was taken after talks with protesting locals who staged a dharna outside Chomu police station on Tuesday, demanding government jobs and greater compensation for the families.

The bodies of the four people, including a two-year-old boy, who were killed in the terror attack on a bus carrying pilgrims, were brought here by train on Tuesday and taken to Harmada and Chomu by their relatives, police said.

Cloth dealer Rajendra Saini (42), his wife Mamta (40), their relative Pooja Saini (30) and her two-year-old son Titu were among the nine people killed after terrorists opened fire on the bus that plunged into a gorge.

Rajendra and Mamta are survived by their two sons and a daughter. Rajendra was the only earning member of the family.

Chief Minister Bhajanlal Sharma said his government is committed to providing all necessary support to the affected families.

“The death of four citizens of Chaumun, Jaipur, in the cowardly attack on a pilgrim bus in Jammu and Kashmir is extremely sad.

“In this hour of immense grief, our sensitive government will provide financial assistance of Rs 50 lakh to each affected family. In this hour of grief, the state government stands with the families of the deceased and would also like to extend all possible support,” Sharma said on X.

In Chomu, where the bodies arrived on Tuesday, the district administration and police tried to pacify the protesters, who were demanding compensation of Rs 1 crore and a government job for the victim’s family.

“An agreement was reached (after talks) to provide compensation of Rs 50 lakh to each family, two contractual jobs and allotment of milking booths. The protest has ended and the bodies have been handed over for the last rites,” said Chomu SDM Dilip Singh.

Pooja Saini’s husband Pavan (32) was injured in the incident, a police officer said.

While Rajendra and Mamta were residents of Chomu town in Jaipur district, Pooja was the resident of Ajmera ki Dhani in Harmada area on Chomu road.
