Chandigarh, (Raftaar News Bureau):

Expressing deep shock over the tragic incident, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday announces ex-gratia of Rs 50000 to the families of each of the five children who drowned in a pond in a Ludhiana village, as well as the migrant who also died while trying to save them.
