Six Congress MPs have been suspended from the Lok Sabha for five days over 'unruly behavior'.

The six members; Adhir Rajan Chowdhury, Gaurav Gogoi, K Suresh, MK Raghavan, Ranjeet Ranjan and Sushmita Dev; "had stormed the Well, torn papers and thrown it towards the Chair", Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said.

Even afterwards, Congress members protested the move and demanded all party members be suspended.
