Extending his condolences to the families of the three children, Stalin announced the ex gratia amount to be given from the Chief Minister's Public Relief Fund.

On Wednesday, 14 inmates of the home and the warden had dinner and later some of them complained of uneasiness and by Thursday morning the situation turned worse.

The ministers also announced Rs 1 lakh relief to each of the deceased children's family from the DMK party fund, and Rs 50,000 to those admitted to the hospital.

Interacting with mediapersons, Jeevan said that stringent action would be taken against the administrator of the children's home, Senthilnathan.
