Shylaja mentioned Kunhalikutty's name in connection with recent allegations thrown at each other by the IUML leader and his brother-in-law, with the latter claiming that he had helped his relative to wriggle out of the sex scam case.
The opposition members objected to the remarks maintaining that the IUML leader was never chargesheeted in the case.
As the house plunged into turmoil, Speaker adjourned the house.
