The Orissa High Court on Thursday directed the State government to pay compensation of Rs 10 lakh to one Madhav Soren for the death of his seven-year-old daughter due to a school wall collapse more than eight years ago.

Raimati Soren was a student of Class-I at Kolhabeda Ashram School under Ghasipura Block in Keonjhar district. She was staying in the hostel of the same school. On October 3, 2013 at about 6.45 am, Raimati and some other students were brushing their teeth near a newly constructed kitchen shed, when the side wall collapsed. While other students managed to escape, Raimati could not.
