The Rajya Sabha was adjourned on Thursday for 15 minutes after Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and Samajwadi Party (SP) members vociferously raised the issue of jailed Gujarat police official DG Vanzara's letter against Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi.

As soon as the house met at 11am, JD(U) and SP members raised the issue.

Unable to take up the scheduled business in the face of Opposition protests, Rajya Sabha deputy chairman PJ Kurien announced that the House be adjourned for 15 minutes.

Indian Police Services (IPS) officer DG Vanzara, charged and incarcerated in three staged gun battle cases, tendered his resignation on Tuesday accusing the Gujarat chief minister of betraying him.

Vanzara wrote a stinging letter accusing Modi and former Gujarat home minister Amit Shah of approving the killings of alleged terrorists in staged gun battles.
