Court Orders Centre To compensate For 1994 Army Killings In Assam

The Gauhati High Court on Thursday directed the Centre to pay compensation of ₹ 20 lakh each to the families of five youths killed by the Army in Assam’s Tinsukia district in 1994 during an anti-insurgency operation, the advocate of a petitioner said.

The court also declared the case closed in view of the long time that has elapsed, which makes it difficult to retrieve evidence or witnesses, advocate Pari Barman told PTI.
