Shouting slogans against the state government, the MLA stormed into the well of the house when the session started.

Rashid alleged that the state government had arrested a teacher who issued the school certificate of Sahil Ahmad Sheikh, who has been detained under the Public Safety Act. The certificate stated that Sahil was a minor.

Assembly speaker Kavinder Gupta ordered the MLA to be removed after repeated requests failed to calm him down.

On Monday, Rashid waved a school certificate of Sahil that confirmed that the student was a minor.
