Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday expressed grief and shock at the killing of a Bihari examinee, who died in the violence unleashed allegedly by MNS activists on North Indian candidates, and announced an ex-gratia of Rs 1.5 lakh for his family.
Pavan, a resident of Bara Khurd in Noorsarai police station limits of Nalanda district, was brutally assaulted by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena activists, leading to his death when he had gone to Mumbai to appear in a railway recruitment examination.
"I am deeply pained and shocked at the killing of Pavan. May God give his family the strength to bear the huge loss. May his soul rest in peace," Kumar, who also hails from Nalanda, said in a condolence message.
Kumar said while the state government would give Rs 1 lakh to the family of the deceased, the rest 50,000 would be given from the Chief Minister's Relief Fund.
