RJD MLAs and MLCs raised anti-government slogans in the portico of both the houses before moving inside, accusing the Nitish Kumar government of trying to cover up the incidents.
As soon as the question hour ended in the assembly, RJD's Bhai Virendra and Samrat Choudhary moved an adjournment motion seeking a debate on the issue but Speaker Uday Narayan Choudhary rejected the plea, saying it was not in keeping with the rules of the house.
This led the RJD MLAs to start shouting anti-government slogans and demanded that the state government make a detailed reply besides recommending a CBI enquiry into the incidents.
Even as the Speaker keep on saying that the members could raise the issue through call attention notice and place their demands, the agitated members did not relent.
Later Parliamentary Affairs Minister Vijendra Prasad Yadav said RJD members should have raised the issue in other form and the state government was ready for making a reply.
Lone CPI MLA Awadhesh Rai also joined his RJD colleagues, supporting the demand for a CBI probe.
The state legislative council too witnessed a similar scene when Deputy Chairman Salim Pervej rejected the adjournment notice of RJD leader Gulam Gaus and others.
Gaus demanded that the state government should make a statement on the gangrape issue soon.
He also sought a CBI probe into the gangrape incident.
Congress members also supported Gaus and other RJD colleagues.
After Pervej rejected the call attention notice of Gaus, the house plunged into pandemonium with the opposition members started shouting anti-government slogans.
Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh who was present in the house said the state government was ready for a detail reply on the gangrape case and the chair should fixed an appropriate time and date for it.
The house was later adjourned for lunch recess.
