The Home ministry on Wednesday announced an ex-gratia of Rs 10 lakh to the next of kin of Delhi police constable Subhash Chand Tomar, who died on Tuesday.

An ex-gratia of Rs 10 lakh will be given to the family of Tomar in addition to the financial and other relief announced by the Delhi police, a Home ministry spokesperson said.

The 47-year-old constable, who was injured during violent protests at India Gate on Sunday, died on Tuesday after battling for life in a city hospital.

Tomar was posted in Karawal Nagar area and was called for maintaining law and order at India Gate area during the weekend protests over the gangrape of a 23-year-old girl.
