2002 Riots Victim Bilkis Bano To Get Rs. 50 Lakh Compensation: Top Court

Bilkis Bano -- whose gangrape and family's massacre became one of the worst instances of the brutality of the 2002 riots in Gujarat -- will receive a compensation of Rs. 50 lakh from the state government, the Supreme Court ordered today. On learning that she has no place to live and been leading a nomadic life since 2002, a three-judge bench led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi also asked the state to provide her with a government job and accommodation. The Gujarat government told the Court that it has taken action against police officers involved in the case, blocking the pension of four and demoting a fifth.
