Taking cognisance of the matter, chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday announced compensation of Rs 2 lakh each to the kin of the deceased and Rs 50,000 for each of the injured.

Seven people were rescued from the debris as locals joined the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) in relief operations.
