Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has cleared the name of senior advocate Anmol Ratan Singh Sidhu for the position of Punjab Advocate General, official sources said on Friday.

Sources said that the appointment would be notified soon. The state government under the new Chief Minister had initially cleared the name of senior advocate DS Patwalia for the position but took back that decision.

The position fell vacant after former advocate general Atul Nanda resigned hours after Amarinder Singh stepped down from the chief minister’s post.

Sidhu has been practising law on both the criminal and constitutional sides.
