Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Htregion -

PANCHKULA: Rusted , broke and ly­ing in the dump yard for three years, the burnt ve­hi­cles at po­lice sta­tions re­mind one of the hor­ri­fy­ing day, when Panchkula city burnt for hours.

A panel ap­pointed by Panchkula ad­min­is­tra­tion com­plied to­tal of 128 claims of ₹10.5 crore.

But three years later, those who suf­fered losses are still await­ing com­pen­sa­tion . Au­thor­i­ties say the Pun­jab and Haryana High Court is yet to delve into the ques­tion whether the Dera Sacha Sauda should be made to pay the costs.

Owner of Ho­tel Pallavi, which got badly dam­aged, Ajay Aggarwal said: “I suf­fered loss of Rs 80 lakhs. No one lis­tens to us We are wait­ing for the or­der,” he said.

A jour­nal­ist said: “My car was burnt . Till date, it’s ly­ing in the po­lice sta­tion and am await­ing com­pen­sa­tion.”
