The Gujarat fake encounter issue rocked Rajya Sabha on Thursday leading to adjournment of the House till noon.

Soon after the House paid tributes to martyrs of the First War of Independence, V Narayanasamy (Cong), Ramdeo Bhandary (RJD) and Shahid Siddiqui (SP) were on their feet demanding suspension of the Question Hour to discuss the fake encounter killing in Gujarat.

Dinesh Trivedi (TC) sought to raise the issue of the recent killing of farmers in Nandigram in West Bengal.

Chairman Bhairon Singh Shekhawat said he would not allow suspension of the Question Hour.

Amidst the din, he adjourned the House till 12.00 pm.
