Left, Cong seek inquiry into Ahamed's death
The Congress and the Left on Friday demanded a probe over the way the government handled the death of senior Muslim League MP E Ahamed. The parties accused the government of covering up his death until the Budget presentation by giving the impression that the MP was getting treatment.

Cutting across lines
The parties forced an adjournment  as they demanded a detailed probe by a Parliamentary panel. Kerala MPs, cutting across party lines, also demanded a thorough probe. Ahamed had collapsed at the Parliament’s Central Hall on January 31 and was declared dead at 2.15 am the next day.

There were claims that Ahamed was brought dead to the hospital but the government wanted to delay the announcement fearing that the sitting MP’s death would hamper the Budget presentation.
