In her complaint to the police, she has alleged that she was "misbehaved with and beaten" when the session of the House was briefly interrupted on Wednesday after the ruckus created by the two protesters.

"I had gone to see the proceedings of the House, but could not get the pass for the Visitor's Gallery. And, while I was standing outside the building of the House, a group of men, who were engaged in the scuffle, came towards me and I was pushed and shoved, and later taken into a room and kicked," she claimed in her complaint.

Police sources said her complaint has been received.
