Marshals evict the seven members who refused to leave the House and remained squatted in the well for over two hours.

The seven MPs were on Tuesday suspended for their unruly behaviour yesterday over the Women's Bill.

The members who were suspended for the entire Budget session at 12 noon, virtually staged a dharna in the well even after the House was adjourned. They continued to stay put even when the House reassembled at 2 PM forcing another adjournment till 3 PM.

Though Chairman Hamid Ansari did not name Rajniti Prasad (RJD), he too joined the suspended members and sat along with them, leaving the security staff in a dilemma on how to handle the situation.

The frequent adjournments left members of the BJP, which is supporting the Women's Bill, irritated. Most of them wanted to barge into the Chairman's chamber but were prevented by the security staff.

Earlier, Subhash Yadav (RJD), Sabir Ali (LJP), Veerpal Singh Yadav, Nand Kishore Yadav, Amir Alam Khan and Kamal Akhtar (all SP), and Ejaz Ali (Unattached) were suspended for their unruly behaviour in the House when the Women's Reservation Bill was moved for discussion.
