New Delhi: Delhi government on Monday announced a compensation of Rs three lakh each for the kin of four children who were killed when the wall of a multi-storeyed building fell on them.

The decision to award compensation to the families of the victim came at the Cabinet meeting chaired by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

Four children were killed when the wall of an under- construction building collapsed in Chattarpur extension in South Delhi yesterday.

Commenting on the incident, Dikshit said, "the MCD is to be blamed for the collapse. We held MCD responsible for the collapse. Civic agencies have failed to control illegal constructions in the city."
