Announcing the Bihar State Bar Council's decision to this effect, its president Rajendra Prasad Singh said here tonight that apart from observing the strike the Council demanded from the government a compensation of Rs ten lakh to the wife of Mr Yadav and a suitable job to a member of the deceased's family.

Mr Yadav was gunned down by a gang of criminals in broad daylight at Jehanabad on December 27.

However, none of the assailants had so far been arrested despite a massive manhunt by police, official sources said.
