The amount was distributed among them during a function held in Rourkela on Monday night.

So far, the district administration has distributed a total amount of Rs 30,81,900 as compensation, in phases, to the affected Sikhs in and around the city, official sources said.

The remaining victims would be compensated after their cases are finalised by the administration.
