The Uttar Pradesh government on Sunday announced a compensation of Rs 6 lakh for the kin of terror suspect Khalid Mujahid, who died in police custody May 18.

The state government also said it would ensure "justice" in the case of Mujahid, who was an accused in serial blasts that had rocked Lucknow and Faizabad courts in November 2007.

"A financial assistance of Rs 6 lakh has been sanctioned for the family of Mujahid. The government will ensure that justice is meted out," a government spokesman said here.

He said though on demands of family of Mujahid, a CBI probe has been ordered, the state government too is conducting an inquiry into the matter.

Meanwhile, judicial inquiry into the case started Sunday.

Meanwhile, the special court of Faizabad additional district judge Mohammad Hussain removed the name of Mujahid from the blast case proceedings after Mujahid's death.
