Punjab Governor asks CM to provide report on minister Aman Arora’s conviction

Chandigarh : Governor Banwarilal Purohit has sought a detailed report from CM Bhagwant Mann on the issue of conviction and sentencing of Governance Reforms Minister Aman Arora in a family dispute case.

Arora was convicted on December 21 by a Sangrur court in a case of trespassing, causing hurt and rioting, in a case dating back to 2008. Though the Supreme Court order, in the case of Lily Thomas vs Union of India, has laid down for the disqualification of the member of the House immediately upon conviction of any offence, official sources in the government say that a time of 30 days from the date of conviction is allowed to the member to file an appeal against conviction in a higher court.
