"We appeal the state government for a compensation of at least Rs 10 lakh to the bereaved poor family of Amarnath pilgrim Ravi Kant and government job for at least two members of the family," VHP state chief Rama Kant Dubey told reporters here.
He said a CBI inquiry should be ordered into the incident and also in Gool firing incident so that persons responsible for it, including police and administration, are brought to book.
