Congress MLA Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan carried a used teargas shell into the Kerala Assembly Wednesday.
Radhakrishnan showed the shell to the Speaker, saying it had been used to disperse Youth Congress protesters last week.
Radhakrishnan said the shell was beyond its expiry date, but that the police had still used it. The implication was that the police had used expired ammunition on the Youth Congress protesters.
News reports quoted Radhakrishnan as saying that this was "police raj".
Radhakrishnan later submitted the shell to the speaker.
