As promised in the Assembly on Friday, Minister KT Rama Rao extended support to the family of Syed Saifuddin, a resident of Hyderabad who was killed in a communal altercation in the Jaipur-Mumbai train on July 31. The government appointed Late Saifuddin’s wife Anjum Shaheen as Office Subordinate in Quli Qutub Shah Urban Development Authority, sanctioned a 2BHK flat, and provided an ex-gratia of Rs. 6 lakhs from the BRS Party side.

The plight of the deceased family was brought to the notice of the government by AIMIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi in the Assembly. Keeping their financial conditions in view, the legislator has requested the government to help the bereaved family members. Responding to Owaisi’s request, Minister KTR promised to help the family by offering a job to the victim’s wife, a 2BHK flat, and on behalf of the BRS Party, KTR has also announced an amount of Rs. 6 lakhs as ex-gratia.

Keeping his word, the Minister handed over the appointment letter, Rs. 6 lakh cheque, and allotment order for a 2BHK flat in Jiyaguda to Anjum Shaheen in the Assembly premises on Saturday. Home Minister Mahmood Ali and MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi were present on the occasion.

Saifuddin, a mobile phone technician, was a resident of AC Guards in Hyderabad, and he was the sole breadwinner of the family. Saifuddin is one of the four victims of the firing incident in the Jaipur-Mumbai train in which an RPF constable indiscriminately shot four persons dead.
