Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Friday informed the house that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member Bhagwant Mann would not attend the proceedings of the house till 9 December. Mahajan extended Mann's quantum of punishment.

Mann was being probed by a nine-member Lok Sabha committee for posting a video footage of Parliament on a social media site.

Mahajan had set up a panel on 25 July to probe the alleged breach of Parliament security by the AAP leader, who on 21 July posted on Facebook his route from home to Parliament House.
