New Delhi: BJP legislator Vijender Gupta on Friday complained to Delhi Police that AAP MLA Sharad Chauhan had made remarks inside the assembly threatening to kill him.
However, Speaker Ram Niwas Goel told police not to take any action in the matter as it pertained to proceedings in the house.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia raised the issue in the assembly and said he had got information that Gupta had made a complaint against Chauhan with police after walking out of the house.
Sisodia said the way Gupta had made the complaint should be treated as contempt and that the issue should have been raised in the House.
The Speaker agreed and said: "Yes it is matter of contempt."
There was heated exchange of words between Gupta and Chauhan when the house was discussing the issue of a sex video allegedly involving sacked Delhi minister Sandeep Kumar.
Gupta later filed a complaint with Civil Lines Police. Police said they have received a complaint.
