Punjab Police to Pay Families of the Disappeared

BBC: Punjab police are going to be paying Rs. 250,000 ($5500 USD) to 109 families of people who were killed in police custody during the 1980s and early 1990s. The payments are being ordered by the National Human Rights Commission.

Last I heard, there were 2500 people who were cremated in this way. Are they all going to get paid?
