The Haryana Government has announced a compensation of Rs two lakh each for the next of kin of the three deceased persons hailing from Faridabad who were killed when the air ambulance crashed into their house.

Besides the compensation, government job will also be given to one member of the family of Sobhraj Sehrawat whose house suffered damage in the crash, the Faridabad Deputy Commissioner, Mr Praveen Kumar, said.

A sum of Rs 20,000 each will be given to those injured.

The State Labour Minister, Mr Shiv Charan Sharma, said the Government would rebuild the house of Sehrawat.

“There should be a proper inquiry into the incident. I would not blame anybody for the incident. It is bad luck,” the Faridabad MP, Mr Avtar Singh Badhana, told reporters.

Sehrawat’s house, in which three women were killed, was the worst hit by the crash. 55-year-old Vedvati, her daughter Sarita (19) and daughter-in-law Rani (20) were killed in the crash.

Ten persons, including all seven onboard a small medical ambulance aircraft, were killed when the flight to Delhi from Patna crashed into roof of the two houses in bad weather and caught fire in Sector 22 last night. Three persons were injured in the crash.
