Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday night said that his government would look into the matter and take action.

"Everything is there in the video footage and movement of every individual has been recorded on camera, action will be initiated for violation of any law," he added.

The police said the attackers will be identified on the basis of video footage.

Choudhary’s house was attacked on Tuesday by RJD workers during a march led by party chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and his 16 legislators to protest the bid to split the party.

It was first time that the house of a Speaker was attacked in a protected area in Patna.

Choudhary on his part said that his house was attacked because he hails from the Mahadalit caste, the poorest among the Dalits.

Choudhary said his decision to recognise the legislators as a separate group was interim and based on ‘rules and provisions’.

The Speaker recalled that 13 of 22 RJD legislators submitted a letter with their signatures, demanding recognition as a separate group.

"I will study their letters and then give a final decision soon," he said.
