New Delhi: Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel, on Wednesday, criticised the AAP MLAs involved in heckling sacked minister Kapil Mishra inside the House, saying the incident was “deeply disturbing”.

The Speaker said he will “look into the matter” while taking on Mr Mishra over his demand that a special session be convened at the Ramlila Maidan over allegations of corruption against chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and health minister Satyendar Jain.

“Whatever happened today inside the Delhi Assembly is unfortunate. I am deeply disturbed with the incident. Whatever they (AAP MLAs) did was wrong. The MLAs should not have left their seats,” he said.

Earlier, the House witnessed unruly scenes as Mr Mishra was pushed and dragged by a few AAP MLAs after demanded a special session of the Assembly at Ramlila Maidan to discuss corruption allegations.
