"We will request him to ask the government to convene a special session of Parliament," BJP leader Sushma Swaraj told reporters.

She said the government does not want an all-party meeting on the issue. She also denounced police for "brutally" attacking Sunday women and others protesting the gang-rape of a 23-year-old woman.
