Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien has been suspended from the Rajya Sabha for the rest of this session for “unruly behaviour”, as Parliament resumed amid tension over the major security breach in the Lok Sabha last afternoon.

Mr O’Brien had demanded a discussion on the incident, in which two men jumped from the visitors’ gallery into the Lok Sabha and burst yellow smoke canisters. An apoplectic Rajya Sabha Chair Jagdeep Dhankhar named the Bengal politician and directed he leave the House.

Despite the warning, Mr O’Brien and other opposition MPs continued to protest, and demanded that Union Home Minister Amit Shah be present in the House to answer for yesterday’s incident.

“Derek O’Brien is named to leave the House immediately… Derek O’Brien says he will defy the Chair… Derek O’Brien says he will not respect the rules. This is a serious misconduct. This is a shameful incident,” Dhankhar said, removing the Trinamool leader for “disorderly conduct”.

The Delhi Police’s Special Cell has arrested the fifth suspect in the Parliament security breach case while the sixth accused is still on the run.
