Bengal speaker orders detention for Congress leader
Kolkata: Reputed advocate and former Congress lawmaker Arunava Ghosh was Tuesday slapped with detention for a few hours in the state assembly for making derogatory remarks about Speaker Biman Banerjee.
Ghosh later said he would move the court against the sentence.
Ghosh was summoned to the bar of the house, where he stood as the speaker delivered his ruling sentencing him to detention.
"Anurava Ghosh has deliberately committed gross breach of privilege and contempt of house by casting deep aspersions on the character and impartiality of the speaker in discharge of his duties in running the house," Banerjee said, citing the report of the Committee of Privileges submitted to the house Monday.
