New Delhi: The Lok Sabha was on Thursday disrupted when Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members sought a discussion on the death of a 13-year-old girl in Punjab after she was molested.
Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu and AAP’s Bhagwant Mann and Dharamvir Gandhi raised the issue but Speaker Sumitra Mahajan disallowed a discussion saying they can raise it only during zero hour.
Furious, the rebuffed MPs trooped near the speaker’s podium and started shouting slogans demanding an immediate discussion.
The speaker, however, asked them to return to their seats and adjourned the house briefly.
The teenager died and her mother was seriously injured in Punjab when they jumped from a moving bus to escape molestation. The incident occurred on Wednesday evening near Moga town.
