Lok Sabha Speaker forms panel to probe Bhagwant Mann

New Delhi: 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 the remainder of session until a decision has 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 checkpoints, and posted it on the social media, drawing flak from various quarters for putting Parliament complex security in danger. However, he apologised to the Lok Sabha Speaker and removed the video from Facebook.
