Speaker Gaurishankar Agrawal said there was no tradition of suspending question hour and requested the opposition to participate but Congress MLAs stuck to their guns and started raising slogans, forcing the speaker to adjourn the house.

After the house re-assembled, speaker read out notice submitted by Bhupesh Baghel (Congress) and sought reply from home minister Ram Sewak Paikra. In his reply, Paikra said a person, who was working at the construction site of the anicut, kidnapped an eight-year-old boy and stuffed him in a gunny bag, which was kept in a pit.

After he left the spot, the boy struggled and came out of the bag, rushed home and narrated the incident to his parents. Subsequently, the police registered a case against an unidentified person and three suspects had already been detained for interrogation.

Agitated over the incident, villagers set construction equipment ablaze at the anicut site.

A company representative later lodged a complaint with the police against the villagers for ransacking and setting equipment on fire.

Later, speaking on the admissibility of adjournment motion, leader of the opposition TS Singhdeo, Bhupesh Baghel, Satya Narian Sharma and Amit Jogi termed the attempt for human sacrifice as a serious incident and favoured the house taking up their notices for adjournment motion for debate. Legislative affairs minister Ajay Chandrkar and Shivratap Sharma (BJP) opposed the demand saying that the government was taking prompt action.

Though Congress leaders pressed for a probe by a committee of legislators, home minister announced that an officer of the rank of inspector general of police would be asked to investigate the case. Later, speaker Gaurishankar Agrawal disallowed the notice for adjournment motion.

Dissatisfied by the reply, opposition Congress legislators staged a walkout and later staged a dharna in front of Gandhi statue on the Vidhan Sabha premises.
