The families of the deceased and labour union leaders had urged for compensation and held protest in front of the police station of the town on Saturday. Discussion was held between the family members, engineer and the owner of the house, who was building the retainer wall. It is said that the owner of the house and engineer have agreed to pay Rs 2.50 lac compensation to each of the family of the deceased people.

Accordingly as the first instalment Rs 50000 each was given to the family members of the deceased. The rest Rs two lac will be given after the case gets resolved in the court.

The post mortem of the deceased labourers was carried out at the government hospital of Sullia and were sent to their native place Gadag, where the final rites were performed.

Two sons of Somashekhara Reddy and Shanta couple became orphans as they lost their parents. It is urged that compensation needs to be given urgently for them to continue their education. It is also said that the labour leaders have assured compensation through the labour department.

    Engineer and his supervisor must pay the compensation but strangely owner is dragged into the scene... When you entrust a work to the engineer it is the duty of his team to make sure all safely standards are in place... What is the fault of the owner here???... And compensation delayed is equivalent to compensation denied....
