The Executive Committee (EC) of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) suspended its Secretary Ashok Arora with immediate effect in a meeting today and gave the powers of the Secretary to Assistant Secretary, Rohit Pandey.
This move came shortly after Ashok Arora called for an Emergent General Meeting which was scheduled for May 11 at 4.30 PM, with one of the points of agenda being the removal of SCBA President Dushyant Dave from his post.
The EC today also cancelled the proposed EGM convened by Arora and constituted a three member committee to look into the allegations against him.
The decision of the EC to suspend Arora was one taken by majority. President of the SCBA, Dave, abstained from voting.
Following his suspension, Arora has made a communication to the members of the SCBA levelling various allegations against Dave, including use of the SCBA position for his political agenda. He claimed that the conduct of Dave has brought disrepute to the Body which had seen soaring heights under Arora's leadership.
