Shri Manohar Lal Khattar

Chief Minister of Haryana


Dear Shri Khattar ji,


This is in connection with the brutal murder of Junaid son of Jalaladuddin, resident of Khatauli village, Faridabad, Haryana on June 22, 2017.You will recall he was stabbed to death by a communally motivated group.


On June 29th, the papers carried your statement, as Chief Minister of Haryana, condemning the murder. You also declared a compensation of Rs. Ten lakhs. Two of his brothers were also injured, one of them seriously. He has been unable to do any work till now. Unfortunately no compensation whatsoever has been received by the family from the Government. The DC had given five lakh rupees from the Red Cross. On further enquiry the DC said he has not received any orders from the Chief Minister to give the compensation of ten lakh rupees.


It will be appropriate and just if the compensation you had declared is given to the family.


With regards,




(Brinda Karat)
