Kerala landslide: Tamil Nadu CM admits solatium | Chennai News


MADURAI: Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Wednesday declared a solatium of Rs 3 lakh for kin of all those deceased in a landslide in Pettimudi at Idukki district of Kerala on August 6. He announced Rs 1 lakh each for individuals who suffered severe injuries.
The sufferers were individuals from Tamil Nadu.
The announcement didn’t mention the amount of individuals for whom the solatium will be given. A senior revenue official from Tamil Nadu who’s monitoring the continuing search and rescue operations in Pettimudi told TOI that the 82 individuals affected by the landslide were from TN. They settled there three to four centuries past.
Of those 82 men, 12 were rescued while 70 were not missing.
“Until Wednesday day 62 bodies are recovered including one on Wednesday. Sixty of these are identified. DNA test will be conducted to identify two figures which are severely damaged and unidentifiable,” he explained.
Hunt is on for eight more missing men. Revenue officials were at the process of identifying lawful heirs of the deceased. They’re being categorised as sufferers that have valid heirs, people who have secondary heirs at the absence of heirs (siblings) and the third group as people without vaccinations.
whenever the mother, children and spouse of an adult have expired the solatium is very likely to be supplied to the siblings of the victim, considering them as the secondary heir. In a couple of families all of these are dead, which makes it hard to spot their nearest living relative to deliver the solatium.
