Mumbai: The Maharashtra Assembly was adjourned for the day on Friday after members from all parties disrupted proceedings while demanding action against the two police officers who had come to the Vidhan Bhawan without authorisation to arrest MLAs, accused of beating a policeman.

The members also demanded that the suspension of five legislators should be revoked. Girish Bapat (BJP) said that unless the two crime branch officers, who had come to the Vidhan Bhawan on Wednesday to arrest the MLAs, are not suspended and the suspension of legislators is not revoked, the proceedings of the House cannot be normal.

He said traffic police officer Sachin Suryavanshi, who was allegedly thrashed by MLAs on Tuesday, was not on duty when he came to Vidhan Bhawan and hence, to book the MLAs under section 353 which amounts to obstructing a public servant from conducting his duties, was wrong.

Maha Assembly adjourned after members from all parties demand action against two policemen who entered Vidhan Bhawan.

"This is injustice to the legislators," Bapat said. The Lower House saw two adjournments of one hour each before Deputy Speaker Vasant Purke adjourned it for the day. Except laying of papers related to assurances given on the floor of the House during the debate on grants in Budget session of 2011, no other business was transacted.
