MONETARY RELIEF STILL ELUSIVE
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.”
