Rashtriya Janata Dal member of Parliament Uma Shanker Singh on Thursday received a head injury as he fell on the steps near the Speaker's chair in the Lok Sabha and was immediately rushed to hospital by fellow MPs and Parliament staff.

Singh received the injury as he was alighting the stairs near the Speaker's podium and fell behind the Lok Sabha reporters' table just below the rostrum.

Several MPs gathered around 71-year-old Singh, a member from Mahararajganj in Bihar, and put him on a chair before the Parliament staff took him on a stretcher and rushed him to hospital.

Speaker Meira Kumar was seen supervising Singh being rushed to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.

The House, which was earlier adjourned till noon, was again adjourned briefly till 12.15 pm following the incident.
