Arora excused for his absence during Dr Patar’s bhog ceremony on May 20. He said he was away to abroad therefore he could not attend the bhog ceremony.

Dr Patar’s wife Bhupinder Kaur, younger brother Upkar Singh, son Ankur Patar, nephew Swaraj Singh, daughter-in-law Manreet Kaur and close family friend Harpreet Sandhu (Advocate) were present on the occasion.
