Patna: Families of four children, who died due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) in Bihar's Harivanshpur village, have received the ex-gratia of Rs 4 lakhs, which was promised by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

In total, seven deaths were reported in Harivanshpur village. So far, three families have received the money, including the family of Reena Devi, who lost two children due to AES.

 

Families of three more children are yet to receive the amount.

The death toll due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) mounted to 132 in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district today.

Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital (SKMCH), which is handling the largest number of patients in the district, reported 111 deaths while 21 deaths were reported from Kejriwal Hospital.

Nitish Kumar had earlier announced an ex-gratia compensation of Rs 4 lakh each to the families of the children who died due to AES. He had also given directions to the health department, district administration and doctors to take necessary measures for the containment of the disease.
