“All the households of Khan and Sharma will get Rs 11 lakh as ex-gratia commission and Rs 25 lakh from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund as the government would like to honor the martyrdom of the 2 soldiers hailing out of our nation,” Nitish said in an announcement issued from the chief minister’s office.
