Rupani govt’s plea rejected, SC upholds compensation to Bilkis Bano

Sep 30, 2019 12:24 IST

In a relief for 2002 Gujarat riot survivor Bilkis Bano, the Supreme Court has rejected a plea by the Vijay Rupani-led BJP government which sought cancelling of compensation ordered by the court in April this year. The apex court has ordered the Gujarat government to pay ₹50 lakh to Bano, within two weeks. The top court has also ordered the state government to give her a job and accommodation. During the hearing, the CJI clarified that the order to pay compensation along with a job and accommodation was in view of specific facts and circumstances in the case.
