The Rajya Sabha was adjourned on Friday over the Opposition's demand for a parliamentary probe into the Indian Premier League (IPL) row and the alleged involvement of politicians in the body.

As soon as zero hour began, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members led by SS Ahluwalia, Rajiv Pratap Rudy and Prakash Javadekar were on their feet protesting against the snowballing IPL controversy.

Amidst the din, Deputy Chairman K. Rahman Khan asked for official papers to be laid on the table of the house and urged Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Prithviraj Chavan to list the business for the next week.

But the pandemonium continued. Failing to restore order, Khan adjourned the house till 2.30 pm.
