Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Monday formed a nine member panel to probe Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Bhagwant Mann’s breach of security posting a video of Parliament’s interiors.
“A nine member committee to probe and submit its report to the house over AAP MP Bhagwant Mann’s video,” Sumitra Mahajan informed the house.
The speaker also advised Mann not to attend the House for remainder of session until a decision is arrived.
The AAP MP from Punjab stoked a controversy on Thursday after he shot a video clip of his journey from home to Parliament House, including movement past various security check points, and posted it on the social media, drawing flak from various quarters for putting Parliament complex security in danger.
