Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Friday indicated that a breach of privilege complaint filed by BJP member Pragya Thakur against Congress' Rahul Gandhi for calling her a terrorist has been sent to the privilege committee.

Addressing a press conference, Birla said he had sent complaints against different members to committees concerned and that it is now for these panels to decide if a case is made out or not.

During the Winter Session of the Parliament, Thakur had sparked a row by praising Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse, with Gandhi calling her a terrorist on Twitter.

Thakur, an accused in the Malegaon blast case, had apologised in the Lok Sabha and then moved a breach of her privilege complaint against Gandhi.
