“IB officer Late Ankit Sharma was killed mercilessly in Delhi violence. We had declared an honorary amount of Rs 1 crore to be given to his family. It has been approved by the Cabinet today. The approval got delayed due to COVID-19. We are hopeful that the family of the deceased will get this amount in this week,” Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.

Sharma’s body was recovered from a drain in North-East Delhi’s Chand Bagh area in February.
