A four-member special investigation team (SIT) headed by an Additional SP-rank officer has been constituted to probe the incidents of scuffle outside the Vidhan Sabha here on Friday.
The SIT will scan the CCTV footage and videos of the incident, besides recording statements of Vidhan Sabha Secretariat staff and other eyewitnesses, sources said.
The case has been entrusted to the SIT as the complainants, offenders and witnesses are high-profile persons and allegations and counter-allegations have been levelled by ruling and opposition leaders.
Five Congress MLAs, including Leader of Opposition Mukesh Agnihotri, were booked in connection with the incident.
Ugly scenes were witnessed outside the Assembly on February 26 when Congress MLAs tried to stop the Governor when he was leaving after delivering his address, which was cut short due to commotion.
The ruling party leaders and the police reportedly tried to push Congress legislators who were blocking the Governor’s vehicle from leaving the campus.
