Suryanelli gangrape case: Govt told to probe 'manhandling' of CPI-M MP

Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari on Friday directed the government to probe the alleged "manhandling" of CPI-M member T N Seema by Delhi Police during a protest demanding removal of Deputy Chairman P J Kurien who is facing charges in the Suryanelli gangrape case.

Taking a serious note of the matter, members met Ansari in his chamber before the House met for the day seeking his intervention saying Seema is a member of the Rajya Sabha.

Ansari asked the government to submit a report before the next sitting of the House.

"Some members met me this morning and informed that T N Seema, MP, was manhandled yesterday by the Delhi police personnel in a police van. It is a serious matter which relates to the dignity of the member and the prestige of the House.

"I direct the government to inquire into the matter and submit a report before the next sitting of the House," Ansari said.

CPI MP D Raja told reporters that the issue was taken up seriously by members of all parties during their meeting with Ansari and even Union Minister Rajiv Shukla described it as a serious matter.
