The sacked chairperson and the vice-chairperson of the Haryana State Women Commission have approached the Punjab and Haryana high court challenging the state government's decision.

Chairperson Kamlesh Panchal and vice-chairperson Suman Dahiya were removed on Tuesday by the Haryana government.

Panchal's petition is listed for Friday while Dahiya's petition is likely to be listed on Monday.

The duo had alleged "vendetta politics" by the Manohar Lal Khattar government stating that all those who were appointed during the Congress regime were being targeted by the present government. They have also alleged that they were removed on the basis of false complaints.

Panchal was appointed in May last year while Dahiya was appointed in 2012.
