On March 23, leaders of different opposition parties were protesting against the police amendment bill. They had held Vidhan Sabha Speaker Vijay Sinha captive in his own chamber inside the premises and did not allow anyone to go inside. They were sitting on dharna outside. Amid the ruckus, RJD MLA Satish Kumar was injured and was taken to the hospital. Congress MLA Santosh Mishra was kicked by the security forces.
