The Bombay High Court on Tuesday cancelled the caste certificate of Amravati Lok Sabha member Navneet Kaur Rana, saying it was obtained fraudulently using fabricated documents, and also imposed a cost of ₹2 lakh on her.
The independent MP, who won from a constituency reserved for Scheduled Castes, said she would challenge the verdict in the Supreme Court.
A division bench of Justices R.D. Dhanuka and V.G. Bisht asked Rana to surrender the certificate within six weeks and asked her to pay a cost of ₹2 lakh to the Maharashtra Legal Services Authority within two weeks.
