Fake caste certificate of Amravati MP cancelled by Bombay HC


New Delhi, Jun 8 (ILNS) The Bombay High Court has cancelled the caste certificate of Navneet Kaur Rana, Lok Sabha MP from Amravati, while also imposing a fine of Rs two lakh on her.

The bench of Justices RD Dhanuka and VG Bishth directed Rana to surrender the caste certificate within six weeks. The court has further ordered her to pay the amount imposed on her as a fine to the Maharashtra Legal Services Authority within two weeks.

This petition was filed by the former MP Anand Rao Adsul in the High Court against Rana, alleging that she had filed a forged certificate. She got it validated fraudulently from the Caste Scrutiny Committee by producing fabricated and fraudulent documents, to be in the eligibility criteria of filing the nomination.

Rana reached Parliament after winning from the Amravati seat. Amaravati Parliamentary seat was a reserved constituency. Rana contested from here and won against Anand Rao.

“Navneet Kaur Rana should submit all her certificates within six weeks,” the Court held.

Rana had entered politics in 2014. During that time, she had entered the electoral fray on an NCP ticket but lost the election. However, in 2019, she contested independently and reached the Lok Sabha after winning the election. Her husband Ravi Rana is the MLA of Maharashtra. ILNS\DS\SJ\RJ
