New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday announced an ex-gratia of Rs. 25 lakhs to the family of slain NDMC law officer M M Khan.
Khan, 57, was shot dead by two assailants in the city's Jamia Nagar area recently. He was returning home around 7:30 pm when the incident took place.
Police have so far apprehended six people in connection with the case.
The assailants had intercepted Khan’s car before shooting him dead from a close range.
He was rushed to Holy Family hospital where the medics declared him dead.
Khan’s family had told police that he used to receive calls from unknown people during odd hours of the day.
His family members have alleged that he was killed for refusing to take bribe from the owners of a prominent hotel in Delhi’s Connaught Place.
Khan was working as an assistant legal advisor with the NDMC for more than five years.
