New Delhi [India], Feb 5 (ANI): The Rajya Sabha was adjourned on Monday till 2 pm after the house witnessed a protest by the Samajwadi Party (SP) over the Noida fake encounter issue.

Earlier in the day, the party had submitted an adjournment motion notice in the Upper House over the issue.

On Saturday, two people were allegedly shot at by police personnel in Uttar Pradesh's Noida Sector-122.

Among the injured, Jitendra Yadav was shot in the neck and Sunil has wounded his leg.
