KARACHI: Compensation cheques, given by the Punjab government to families of the Data Darbar attack victims have not been honoured.
Sources revealed that banks have refused to entertain the cheques, even after the 15-day processing time. The reason given has been lack of funds in the Punjab government.
Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah rejected the impression that the provincial government does not have the funds. He said they the due compensation will be given soon.
Families of the deceased and injured were given cheques ranging from Rs75,000 to Rs500,000.
