Bengaluru: Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Friday announced Rs 5 lakh compensation to kin of those killed in the blast at a stone mining quarry in Shivamogga.

Speaking to reporters, the chief minister said that a high-level probe has been ordered to find out if any illegal quarrying activity was being conducted. Already two people have been detained and further action will be initiated after the preliminary inquiry.
