New Delhi: Star wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt has lashed out at the Jammu and Kashmir government for its decision to give compensation of Rs 4 lakh to slain terrorist Burhan Wani’s family for the death of his brother Khalid in a shootout.

Khalid was allegedly killed by the security forces while attempting to visit his brother in the forests of Tral area of the Kashmir Valley on April 13, 2012. “The morale of the Army and people is affected by such news. It is a matter of great regret that on the one hand Army personnel are sacrificing their lives for the country while on the other hand terrorists are getting compensation,” Yogeshwar tweeted in Hindi yesterday.
