The Punjab and Haryana High Court recently pulled up the state authorities for delay in releasing compensation to an acid attack victim.

The Court thus directed the State Legal Service Authority to release compensation of Rs. 3 lakh to the victim within a period of four weeks from the date of passing the order.

The order was passed by Justice Manjari Nehru Kaul after it was brought to the attention of the Court that interim compensation was not paid to the victim, as it was not yet received from the office of the State Legal Services Authority.
