Members of MNS and Shiv Sena-BJP created noisy scene in the Maharashtra Assembly on Wednesday, demanding the arrest of SP MLA Abu Asim Azmi over his "behaviour" on the opening day of the session and his subsequent remarks against Sena chief Bal Thackeray.

Soon after the House commenced proceedings, MNS members shouted slogans demanding Azmi's arrest.

They alleged that Azmi had made threatening gestures while he was taking oath on Monday.

Sena-BJP members also joined in, demanding Azmi's arrest for his "derogatory" comments against Bal Thackeray.

The House was adjourned for 10 minutes amid noisy scenes.
