Chandigarh, December 11

Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra has moved the Supreme Court challenging her expulsion from the Lok Sabha.

The Lok Sabha Secretariat last Friday issued a notification announcing the expulsion of Moitra from the Lower House.

The notification came hours after Moitra was expelled from the Lok Sabha as the House adopted a report of its Ethics Committee that held her guilty of accepting gifts and illegal gratification from a businessman to further his interests.

After a heated debate over the panel report during which Moitra was not allowed to speak, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi moved a motion to expel the Trinamool member for "unethical conduct", which was adopted by a voice vote.
