KOCHI: A Lok Sabha MP from Kerala has given a notice to Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and sought permission to move a breach of privilege motion against authorities of RML Hospital in Delhi, contending it "mistreated" the MPs who had reached there to enquire about the health of IUML MP E Ahamed.

Senior IUML leader and Lok Sabha MP E T Mohammed Basheer today said he had mentioned in his notice that RML authorities "mistreated MPs, including Congress President Sonia Gandhi," who had reached the hospital on January 31 night to enquire about the health of Ahamed, who had passed away in the hospital after suffering a heart attack during the President's address to the joint sitting of Parliament. "It is a contempt to the House. It is an insult to the House.

My complaint is against authorities of the RML hospital," Basheer told PTI here. The IUML leader said had given the notice two days prior to the adjournment of the first part of the Budget Session.

Besides Sonia Gandhi, other leaders including Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ahmed Patel and MPs from Kerala had reached the hospital coinciding with the complaint by Ahamed's family that the hospital authorities were not allowing them to meet the former union minister.

Ahamed died at the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital on February 1. Basheer expressed hope that the Speaker would accept his notice against the RML authorities. During the session, the Congress-led opposition had disrupted the Lok Sabha proceedings, demanding a probe into the death of the former Union Minister. The Speaker, however, had rejected the opposition's demand for constitution of a parliamentary panel to probe Ahamed's death.
