He has announced a compensation of Rs 1 crore to the kin of those killed and Rs 5 lakh for those injured in the violence.

Internet services in Mandsaur, Ratlam and Ujjain remained suspended following the farmers' protests.

Mandsaur has been facing a tense situation with farmers protesting over their demands for remunerative prices for their produce and a farm loan waiver not being met.

This, unfortunately, took an ugly turn earlier on Tuesday when five farmers were killed and eight others were injured in police firing.
