New Delhi, Aug. 3 (ANI): The nine-member Lok Sabha committee probing whether Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Bhagwant Mann had put the security of Parliament House in peril with his video would submit its report today.

The committee was assigned to probe Mann's conduct and his act of livestreaming his journey to, and inside the Parliament, and also inquire into the serious security implications and suggest suitable remedial measures to avoid recurrence of such incidents.

Apart from being headed by Kirit Somaiya of the BJP, the committee includes Meenakshi Lekhi and Satyapal Singh (both BJP), Anandrao Adsul (Shiv Sena), Bhartruhari Mahtab (BJD), Ratna De (Trinamool Congress), Thota Narasimham (Telugu Desam), K C Venugopal (Congress) and P Venugopal (AIADMK).

Shiromani Akali Dal's Prem Singh Chandumajra, Bharatiya Janata Party's Maheish Girri and suspended AAP MP Harinder Singh Khalsa yesterday wrote to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, urging her to send Mann to rehab at the Lok Sabha's expense.

The MPs urged the Speaker to ensure that Mann is allowed to take part in Lok Sabha proceedings only after completing rehab.
