Nothing wrong with compensation to victims of Delhi riots: High Court
New Delhi, Mar 4: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed a plea challenging the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government's compensation announced for victims of the riots in northeast Delhi last week.
A bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar said "it is a policy decision" and it will "not interfere" in it.
"The compensation is being awarded on a no fault basis. There is nothing wrong with it," the court said.
It also asked the Delhi government to ensure that compensation is paid only to the victims of the riots.
