NABARANGPURA: The delay in announcing adequate compensation to the bereaved family of PSO Prasant Patro (Pinku), who was killed along with Umerkote MLA Jagabandhu Majhi, by Maoists at Gona village under Raighar block in September last year has been resented by family and police fraternity. Pinku’s father too died last month leaving behind the family in distress. Pinku was the only earning member of the family. Despite several reminders, the State Government has neither announced any compensation nor disbursed any relief to the family.

Soon after his death, police asserted that they were waiting for Crime Branch to submit its report as the quantum of compensation depends on the final findings of the killing. After the announcement of the CB some months back that the Maoists had executed the killing, the delay in disbursing the compensation to the family has created strong resentment among people.
