The man whose photos were doing rounds on the internet has been identified as Rahul. He was traced after investigating the screenshots of a WhatsApp group chat that went viral last week. The man in question entered the hall along with another person when the Assembly was not in session.
Apparently, the other person had clicked his pictures while he was sitting on the chair. The photos show the man sitting on the chair of the Speaker and later, he sat on one of the chairs of the MLAs. No other persons were found sitting inside the hall as seen in the picture.
