The Home Ministry on Friday refuted charges that Delhi Police Inspector M.C. Sharma’s family was given “false promises”.

It pointed out that the family had been paid Rs 85 lakh by the central and state government, a school teacher’s job and a liberalised pension.

The money includes Rs 14 lakh (from the general provident fund), an ex-gratia payment of Rs 15 lakh, an ex-gratia payment of Rs 11 lakh from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund and a cash grant of Rs 25 lakh by Delhi government for Ashok Chakra awarded on Jan 26 2009.

Referring to a news report “Sharma family escort removed” published in the Hindustan Times on Feb 6, a ministry spokesman said it was not appropriate to say that “the family got false promises” from

the Government”.
