An enraged Lamba, who lunged at Sharma with other AAP legislators, tried to slap him. But it did not connect. Though Sharma's remarks could not be clearly heard, Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel quoted Sharma as having termed Lamba 'a woman who roams in the night'.

Expressing shock at the incident, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hoped the BJP would act against Sharma. "Am shocked at language used by OP Sharma, BJP MLA, against a lady MLA. 2 days back also, he abused a lady MLA. Hope BJP will act against him," Kejriwal later tweeted.

Ram Niwas Goel said Sharma was suspended till Thursday even as AAP lawmakers demanded he should be barred from the entire Winter Session, ending November 28.
