ControversyFamily Fued with Rajinder Deepa
In March 2008,  Arora and his brother-in-law Rajinder Deepa made headlines in a family dispute. Deepa alleged that Arora physically assaulted him, claiming that he and his wife, Sonia Arora (Aman Arora's sister), received a call while in Chandigarh, stating that Aman Arora and his associates had unlawfully taken control of his house. Upon reaching his residence, Deepa asserted that Arora and others attacked him with iron rods. Sonia testified in court against Aman, affirming her presence during the assault on Deepa. On the other hand, Arora's mother, Parmeshwari Devi, accused Deepa of forcefully entering her house and behaving improperly. She reported to the police that when her son Aman attempted to stop Deepa, Deepa and his associates assaulted him with rods, causing serious injuries. Subsequently, both Aman and Deepa were hospitalized under police protection. The ongoing rivalry took an unexpected turn when Deepa escaped from the hospital where he was admitted under police protection. [2]The Times of India As the police searched for Deepa, Youth Congress activists staged a protest, prompting the police to take action against the negligent officers. Five policemen were suspended for neglecting their duties. Aman and Deepa had been at odds since Aman's father, Congress minister Bhagwan Dass Arora, committed suicide in 2000. Following Bhagwan Dass' death, Parmeshwari Devi contested the Sunam by-election in 2000 but lost to Parminder Dhindsa. In 2002, Bhagwan Dass' daughter and Deepa's wife, Sonia Deepa Arora, contested the Sunam seat on a Congress ticket but was defeated by Parminder Dhindsa. At that time, Deepa accused Aman of opposing his sister. In 2007, when Aman ran for the assembly elections from Sunam on a Congress ticket, Deepa independently contested against him to ensure his defeat. Due to internal conflicts, the family lost the Sunam assembly constituency in three consecutive terms (2000, 2002, and 2007). In 2011, reports surfaced that after an 11-year-long family feud, Arora's family had reconciled, with Congress chief Amarinder Singh playing the role of a mediator. Both Arora and Deepa put aside their differences ahead of the 2012 assembly elections, with Congress warning the family to either reconcile or risk losing their ticket altogether. [3]The Times of India However, when Arora secured a Congress ticket in 2012 and Deepa failed to secure one, Deepa went back on the compromise. While Arora had withdrawn the 2008 case, Deepa pursued his private complaint filed in January 2009. In 2023, a local court in Sangrur sentenced Aman Arora to two years of rigorous imprisonment in the 2008 family dispute case filed by Deepa. The court also handed two years in jail to eight others, including Arora's 85-year-old mother, and imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on the convicts. They were convicted under IPC Section 452 (house trespass) along with a Rs 5,000 fine and one year’s imprisonment under IPC Secs 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 148 (rioting, being armed with a deadly weapon or with anything which, used as a weapon of offence, is likely to cause death), and 149 (offence committed by any member of an unlawful assembly in prosecution of the common object of that assembly). Arora expressed his intention to challenge the verdict in a higher court, arguing that Deepa had unfairly implicated his mother in a case that had been settled through a compromise years ago.

According to family members, Arora had happily gone to bed at night. However, when he didn’t wake up the next morning, a domestic servant tried to get his attention by knocking on the door repeatedly, but there was no response. Consequently, they broke open the door and discovered Bhagwan Das’ lifeless body. Meanwhile, insiders close to the family revealed that Arora had been suffering from severe depression due to significant disputes over the division of family assets and business. [7]The Tribune
