Lok Sabha Speaker forms committee to probe Bhagwant Mann

 Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan formed a 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.
 
Speaker also asked Mann not to attend the House for remainder of session until a decision is arrived.
 
The AAP MP from Punjab stirred up a controversy last Thursday after he shot a video clip of his journey from home to Parliament House, including movement past numerous security check points, and posted it on the social media, drawing flak from various quarters for putting Parliament complex security in danger.
 
However, later he apologised to the Lok Sabha Speaker and removed the video from Facebook.
