Insolvency of a partner

If a person "X" has declared insolvency of his Pvt. Ltd. Company "A", can "X" continue to be a Partner in another Partnership firm "B"? 

Can "X" transfer his partnership in "B" to his spouse or kids?

The partner cannot continue as one in the firm after being insolvent. The partner ceases to be a partner from the date on which the order of adjudication is made.

Transfer of partnership can be done as per the articles of association of the company, if there is a provision for that.

Since "X" is stated to have been declared insolvant after considering assets vis-a-vis liabilities and liquidation of his firm "A" his firm "B" , accordingly no assets are left unaccounted in case of firm "B".

So many "ifs" make the query as hypothetical and academic, repost if it is a real story.
