Ram Kumar Chaudhary will be sworn in as a legislator in the chamber of assembly Speaker Brij Bihari Lal Butail, government officials said.

Chaudhary, who is lodged in an Ambala jail, was suspended from the party's primary membership Jan 16.

He is one of four suspects in the murder of a 24-year-old woman in Panchkula in Haryana Nov 22.

After evading arrest, Chaudhary surrendered before a Panchkula court Jan 8, the day other legislators took oath.

Chaudhary is a first-time legislator from Doon in Solan district. He is the son of four-time Congress legislator Lajja Ram.
