New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday met the family of an 18-year-old DU student, who was allegedly beaten to death over his friendship with a woman in Adarsh Nagar, and announced an ex-gratia of Rs 10 lakh.

Talking to reporters here, Sisodia said the Delhi government will ensure that the culprits get strict punishment at the earliest by appointing prominent lawyers in the case.

The deputy chief minister said the victim aspired to be an IPS officer.

The incident took place on Wednesday evening in northwest Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar.

Rahul Rajput was a second-year student in Delhi University’s School of Open Learning. He also provided tuition to school students, police said.
