Chennai: The Madras High Court on Friday ordered payment of Rs 10 lakh each to the families to two girls electrocuted in the state capital.

Bhavana and Yuvashri, both aged eight, died on November 1 when they stepped on a power cable submerged in water in the Kodungaiyur locality.

The High Court ordered the Tamil Nadu government to pay compensation after it took suo motu notice on Thursday when a lawyer made an urgent mention of the matter.

The government told the court that the electricity supply utility had already given Rs 2 lakh each as compensation while Chief Minister K. Palaniswami had announced Rs 3 lakh each to the families.
