Rajya Sabha proceedings on Tuesday were adjourned till 2 pm after the opposition created an uproar over police action on protesting JNU students and the detention of political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir.

Soon after the House met, Left and other opposition parties raised the two issues.

Around 100 protesting students of JNU, who were marching toward Parliament to demand a total rollback of hostel fee hike, were detained and some were injured when the police allegedly canecharged them on Monday.
