The 22-year-old woman was accompanied by her father and Congress party leaders.

However, security personnel at the Assembly stopped her entry inside the complex.

"She did not have any entry pass. We stopped her for security reasons," a security official told mediapersons.

The scuffle ensued between Congress leaders accompanying the woman and security personnel at the Assembly complex.

The Supreme Court had earlier demanded an explanation from the Punjab government regarding the issue. After the apex court's intervention, the two constables were arrested.
