New Delhi, Oct 29 (UNI) India's ambassador to the US Ronen Sen today appeared before the members of the Lok Sabha Privileges Committee and reportedly tendered an unqualified apology for his " headless chicken" remarks in the context of the Indo-US nuclear deal.

All throughout the interrogation Mr Sen said that they were not against the MPs and blamed the media for this crisis.

According to committee sources, the panel is likely to accept his apology and decide that no further action is needed.

The Committee Chairman V Kishorchandra Deo declined to say anything except that he would submit a report to the House.

Mr Sen reportedly told the Committee that it was not an interview over a mobile phone and that too was off the record.

In the history of the Indian parliament. this is perhaps for the first time that a top diplomat appeared before the law makers for making controversial remarks that created a furore in both the Houses of Parliament during the monsoon session.

The Members took the issue seriously and demanded that he be recalled and also summoned before the Privileges Committee.

On November 2, Mr Sen will appear before the Rajya Sabha privileges committee for a similar hearing, the sources added.
