Cong MP Masood disqualified from Rajya Sabha

Convicted Congress leader Rashid Masood on Monday became the first MP to lose his seat after the Supreme Court struck down a provision that protects a convicted lawmaker from disqualification on the ground of pendency of appeal in higher courts.

66-year-old Masood was held guilty in a case of corruption and other offences in September. His conviction was the first after the Supreme Court struck down such a provision.PTI
