Kerala government releases funds for treatment of injured

Kerala government has released financial assistance to the family from Mandekapu, Kayyar in the district, which lost seven of its members in a road accident which happened recently at Karur, Tamil Nadu.

The government had earlier released a sum of Rs 70,000 as exigency assistance for conducting the funeral. An aditional amount of two lac rupees has been released now for the treatment of three of the family members who suffered serious injuries in the said accident and currently undergoing treatment at Kaveri Super Specialty Hospital, Karur.

State revenue minister, E Chandrasekharan, who had visited the home of the deceased victims, had persisted with the chief minister to sanction the financial assistance. The revenue minister instructed the district collector to see that the funds are disbursed to the family without any delay.

    Very sad thing! RIP

    Just that, why people now days are very keen in taking photos or videos from their cell phones even during funeral ceremonies? Very pathetic! Family is in their saddest state & people do not know what & where to take pics! Have some sympathy towards the family members. Its a funeral ceremony & not a justin bieber concert!

    Sorry if I sound rude, but I find this people attitute during funeral procession absolutely nonsense!

    I am in grief and pain seeing 7 members of the family perishing at one single go. I cant imagine how painful it is to accept the fact to the rest of the family members, especially the newly wedded bride. The family went to holy place, where miracles happen, but why was the lord so hard on them while they were returning ? Was their prayers not accepted ? or is that the lord liked them so much, that he called them up to him ? Whatever may be the reason, it is very difficult to accept the fact that 7 innocent lives are no more there on this earth. May lord rest their souls in peace.
