Jat agitation: Prakash Singh panel to visit Rohtak today

New Delhi: The Prakash Singh committee set up by the Manohar Lal Khattar Government to inquire into the acts of ‘omission and commission’ civil and police officers during the Jat quota agitation is set to visit Rohtak today.

The panel headed by retired IPS officer Prakash Singh, will visit the affected areas of the district and interact with both civil and police officers.

It would also meet people of different sections of the society and seek information about the role of the officers.

Meanwhile, the Haryana government has fixed March 5 as the last date for submission of claims by those whose properties were damaged in the incidents of violence and arson during the Jat agitation for quota.

“The last date would be March 5. As March 4 and 5 are holidays, all departments concerned have been asked to make necessary arrangement for receiving claims on both these days,” a government statement said.

These departments will also ensure that the interim compensation is paid or released within four days of the receipt of claims. The remaining compensation will be paid within 15 days, it said. (ANI)
