Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Tuesday ordered an inquiry into the Chamunda Devi temple stampede and announced a compensation of Rs two lakh each for the next of the kin of those killed.

Raje, who visited the spot in the precincts of Mehrangarh fort, said the probe will be carried out by an officer in the rank of additional chief secretary.

She said Rs 50,000 will be paid to the injured.

Congress leader and former Rajasthan chief minister, Ashok Gehlot, who also went to the stampede site, demanded a judicial inquiry into the incident.
