Violence in Delhi last month over contentious citizenship law, which killed over 50 people and injured over 200, is being discussed in parliament today for second consecutive day. 

On Thursday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah while replying to a discussion in parliament on last month's violence in Delhi, said that the culprits behind the killings of Head Constable Ratan Lal and IB Officer Ankit Sharma have been arrested while the investigations into the wider conspiracy are still going on. 

He also said that funds were transferred from abroad and rest of the  country to instigate violence in the national capital.

"We had information from several agencies that money had come from abroad and from the rest of the country and was spread in Delhi before the 24th morning," he said.

Mr Shah also said that instead of Aadhar data, driving license and voter ID database has been used for identifying the culprits.

Major Ports Authority Bill Introduced In Lok Sabha
A bill which seeks to provide autonomy to India's top 12 major ports and improve their efficiency and competitiveness was introduced in Lok Sabha on Thursday amid objections by opposition parties who wanted the government to redraft the legislation to remove ambiguity.

Introducing the Major Ports Authority Bill, Shipping Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said the idea is not to privatise major ports but to give them more powers to take decisions in a competitive market.

Congress' Shashi Tharoor (Congress) and Trinamool Congress' Saugata Roy opposed the bill at the introduction stage, saying the government should go back to the drafting table to bring in more clarity.

Responding to the concerns, the minister said the number of labour trustees remains the same as earlier.

The bill proposes to repeal the Major Port Trusts Act 1963.

The bill was later introduced by a voice vote, news agency PTI reported.
