Nawanshahar: Advocate of Punjab & Haryana High Court, HC Arora has issued a notice to the Punjab Government regarding separate Cremation Grounds for the General and SC Communities in most of the villages of Punjab. This matter was brought in the notice of Advocate HC Arora by RTI activist Parvinder Singh Kittna.

In the notice, Advocate HC Arora sought the immediate orders from Punjab Government regarding developing one Cremation Ground in each village.
