Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee on Monday took a serious view over the use of mobile phones in the House.

Enraged over the ringing of a mobile phone in the midst of the session, the Speaker asked, "is somebody using the cell phone?"

He then asked the member to handover the phone to security personnel.

It is surprising that the cell phone rang despite equipment in place to restrict signals on mobile phones, he said.

Use of mobile phones has been allowed in Parliament but not in the House.
