Fulfilling the promise made to the protesting farmer leaders, the government has given two clerical jobs to the family members of the deceased farmer, Sushil Kajal, at the Karnal co-operative sugar mill on DC rates.

According to farmers, Kajal was among the farmers who received injuries during the police lathicharge on August 28 and succumbed to those injuries later that day.
