New Delhi: Claiming that his life was under "serious threat", a Congress member in Lok Sabha on Tuesday sought security from the Centre saying some people had recently entered his house, beat up his family members and damaged his belongings.

"Madam, I have been raising this matter since last year but no security has been granted to me. The Home Ministry is not at all concerned. I am under serious threat ... I can be killed anytime. It is a conspiracy by my opponents," Rajaram Pal, who represents Akbarpur constituency in Uttar Pradesh, said during Zero Hour.

He claimed that "some goonda-type elements" have been on a dharna outside his house for the past fortnight "under the garb of the Anna Hazare agitation. They also gheraoed my house on a few occasions."

Pal said he had informed the local police and administration but no action was taken. "On August 24, these elements entered my house, attacked and beat up my family members and damaged and broke the belongings."

He demanded that the Home Ministry immediately provide adequate security to him.
