Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan gave another extension to the parliamentary committee formed to probe Aam Aadmi Party MP Bhagwant Mann's filming of "critical" areas of Parliament House building till December 3.

The nine-member committee was to present its report on Friday.

The speaker had said since the charges against Mann were serious in nature, he is advised not to attend the proceedings of the House till a decision is taken on the complaint against him.

He has not been attending the proceedings on the advise of the Chair.

Mann, the AAP MP from Sangrur, had triggered a controversy in July by live-streaming the security arrangements at the Parliament House complex on social media.

After facing flak for his act, the AAP MP had defended his move saying he was only showing people how Parliament functioned.

He had later appeared before the committee and demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's expulsion for compromising on national security for allowing Pakistan's security agency inside the Pathankot airbase after the terror attack on the facility.
