New Delhi:

After getting allegedly thrashed by some of the AAP MLAs, one of the two men was hospitalised. The duo staged a protest in Delhi Assembly on Wednesday.

Identified as Jagdeep Rana, is an AAP volunteer and fought the 2013 Delhi Assembly elections. After the incident, he was rushed to Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital.

A hospital official said, “He was brought here at around 3:30 pm. He is currently in trauma centre to undergo medical tests to find if any internal injury has occurred.”

While a session was underway in the Delhi Assembly, Rana alongwith Rajan Kumar threw papers, which led to a brawl. They were sitting in the visitors’ gallery when they threw off pamphlets and raised ‘Inquilab Zindabad’ slogans.

Rana and Kumar claimed that they took the step as they were unhappy with Kejriwal government. They also alleged corruption cases against Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain in the pamphlets.

As the security personnel were taking the duo away, a few angry AAP MLAs allegedly attacked them outside the House. The incident lasted for nearly 30 minutes until the police personnel came and brought the scuffle to an end.

Following the incident, the proceedings of the House was adjourned for a while, which were later recommenced. One-month jail was then announced by Assembly speaker Ram Niwas Goel to both the protesters.
