Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the family members of the boy who was killed in a blast in Mehrauli of South Delhi on Saturday.

She said the Delhi government would also provide Rs 50,000 to each of the injured person and would give all necessary medical assistance free of charge to them.

Condemning the incident, she said, "It is sorry to hear that yet another blast has taken place in the city. Our government will give compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the dead and Rs 50,000 as well free treatment to those injured in the blast".

Dikshit visited the hospital to meet the injured soon after her arrival from New York, where she had gone to attend a UN-sponsored round-table discussion on environmental sustainability.
