Raipur, Jan 30 (UNI) The Chhattisgarh State Human Rights Commission (CSHRC) has ordered the state government to pay Rs 50,000 each as compensation in a case relating to the deaths of three girls who were crushed after a water tank collapsed.

As per details received from CSHRC, the incident took place in this district's Malda village about one-and-a-half years back. Taking cognisance of newspaper reports, the CSHRC sought a report from the collector and the Kasdol Janpad Panchayat's chief executive officer.
