Bibi Jagir Kaur was on Tuesday expelled from the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee by the Sikh Gurudwara Judicial Commission in connection with alleged irregularities in admission to an MBBS course in an SGPC-run medical college.
The SGJC also debarred her from holding any post in the SGPC, including becoming its member, for five years, SGJC chairman Kashmir Singh Patti announced in Amritsar.
The SGJC also imposed a fine of Rs 2.50 crore on Kaur to compensate the loss arising out of the irregular admissions through the non-resident Indian quota in the MBBS course.
She has been given 90 days to file an appeal against the SGJC order in the Punjab and Haryana high court. The order was passed on a petition filed by one Narinder Pal Singh, a resident of Ludhiana.
