On the last day of the session, Rajya Sabha had witnessed protests by Opposition parties after the OBC Bill was passed and the Insurance Bill was taken up, and Marshals had to be called in the Upper House.
Opposition leaders have alleged that they were assaulted by marshals, while the government accused the former of assaulting the Parliament security staff.
