Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday offered a government job to the sister of Aaj Tak news channel journalist who died while covering the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh.

Kejriwal made the offer when he and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia met the family of deceased journalist Akshay Singh at their residence.

Kejriwal offered a government job to Akshay Singh's sister, a family member told IANS. "The chief minister has also promised all financial help to us," he said.

Sisodia told the media, "We offered to help the family financially as well."

The Delhi-based Akshay Singh died mysteriously on July 4 while covering the story of the Vyapam recruitment scandal.
