Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Tuesday announced compensation of Rs.200,000 to the kin of each of those killed in communal clashes in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar.

The prime minister expressed deep anguish over the loss of lives in the violence, said an official statement from Prime Minister's Office.

Apart from the relief to the kin of those killed, Rs.50,000 has been sanctioned to each to the seriously injured people from the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund.

Shoot-at-sight orders were issued Monday and the army carried out flag marches in Muzaffarnagar as the toll rose to 32 in the communal riots, one of the worst in the country in recent times.
