Remembering the martyrs of Parliament attack

December 13, 2007

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh faced an embarrassing moment when an inconsolable widow of one of the Parliament terror attack victims accused the government of not fulfilling the promises made to her.

A tearful Vimla Devi, wife of ASI Nanak Chand who was killed in the 2001 terrorist attack, narrated her woes, saying that she was yet to get land for a petrol pump which had been allotted to her as part of compensation following her husbandís killing.
