New Delhi, Jun 27 (PTI) The CPI(M) Thursday demanded a compensation of Rs 25 lakh for the family of Tabrez Ansari, who was recently lynched by a mob in Jharkhand.

He had succumbed to injuries on June 22. He was seen in a video being forced to chant "Jai Shri Ram" and "Jai Hanuman".

"CPIM delegation meets family of TabrezAnsari, demands 25 Lakhs as compensation & strict action against the culprits. Tabrez Lynched In Jharkhand by Hindutva goons," the party tweeted.
