Punjab's Advocate-General APS Deol on Monday handed over his resignation to the Chief Minister, barely a month after his appointment.

New Delhi, 01 November2021

As per news report of NDTV, state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu had opposed the senior advocate's appointment as he was at one time the counsel for two accused cops in a sacrilege and police firing case. It is also being said that the decision may be a result of frequent meetings between the Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and the Congress high command.Mr Deol's appointment had triggered a debate within the party as well because he had represented former top cop Sumedh Singh Saini and Inspector General Paramraj Singh Umaranangal in relation to cases regarding incidents of sacrilege and subsequent police firing in Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan in 2015.
