MLA Jammu West Sat Sharma (CA) raised the question of Chamel Singh in the Zero Hour of todays Assembly Session. Sharma raised the issue regarding the compensation to the family of the deceased.
It is pertinent to mention that Chamel Singh was killed in Kot Lakhpat jail in Pakistan by the Jail authorities same as the case of Sarabjeet Singh of Punjab where Punjab State paid Rs. 1 crore and Central Govt. paid Rs. 25 Lakhs to the family of Late Sarabjeet Singh but the then Omar Abdullah led Government failed to compensate the family of Chamel Singh despite of countless representations made by the family. The issue regarding this has been raised timely by Sat Sharma (CA).
All MLAs from Jammu province supported the issue raised by MLA Jammu West Sat Sharma (CA). Sharma said that a representation to the present Hon’ble CM Mufti Mohd. Sayeed has been given and demanded that the family be suitably compensated and government jobs be given to the kins of Chamel Singh and martyr status be also awarded.
