"Ram, 28, was on picket duty with one of his colleagues when he was hit by a white coloured Maruti Ritz car driven by Ramakant, a driver by profession in the Moti Nagar area of west Delhi."
New Delhi, June 17 - Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung Tuesday sanctioned Rs.1 crore to the family of a police constable who was run over by a car while on duty in the capital.

Earlier, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal wrote a letter to Jung, requesting Rs.1 crore as compensation to the family.

Constable Manna Ram was run over by a car Saturday evening when he tried to stop it from entering a no entry zone in west Delhi.

Jung said the government will explore the possibility of extending all help to the family and a job, subject to fulfilling certain requirements.

The government had earlier announced Rs.10 lakh compensation to his family.

Meanwhile, Delhi Police Tuesday constituted a three-member team of inspectors from the Crime Branch, the Traffic Unit and the Moti Nagar police station to probe the case.

Ram, 28, was on picket duty with one of his colleagues when he was hit by a white coloured Maruti Ritz car driven by Ramakant, a driver by profession in the Moti Nagar area of west Delhi.

Ramakant, later arrested along with his two minor friends (aged 15-16 years), was on a joy ride, police said.
