The District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) on Wednesday released grants of Rs 2 lakh each to two sodomy victims, six months after the court had asked the administration to do so.
The money has been granted under the victim compensation scheme, an initiative started by the State Legal Services Authority.
The two minor victims had moved an application before the DLSA secretary seeking compensation from the administration. It was stated in the application that the victim was from a financially unstable background and his mother was handicapped.
