Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit handed over a cheque of Rs. 15 lakh as ex-gratia to the father of the 23-year-old gangrape victim on Thursday.


The chief minister assured him of all possible help to the family and told him that her government would explore the possibility of providing a flat to them.

Dikshit handed over the cheque to the father of the girl at her residence.

The decision to extend the financial help to the family of the deceased girl was taken by the Delhi Cabinet on December 31.
