Jammu: The Jammu Province Peoples Forum (JPPF) on Saturday demanded compensation for the kin of those killed during the Amarnath land row agitation in 2008.

The Jammu and Kashmir government had announced relief of Rs 5 lakh each to the kin of those killed in Ramban firing recently, JPPF chief Pavitar Singh said here.

But no ex-gratia or any kind of compensation had been given to the kin of those killed during the Amarnath land row stir, he said.

"This shows double standards of the state government while dealing with Jammu province," Singh said.

As many as 14 people had been killed during the 63-day-long agitation.

The JPPF president demanded an independent probe into the Ramban firing.
