On Saturday, BJP MP Devi had said Khan should be suspended from Lok Saba for five years and a mere apology from him for his remarks against her will not do.
'The statement that he made while addressing a lady Chairperson crossed all limits of decency. He deserves a stringent punishment to preserve the dignity and decorum of the House,' Sushma Swaraj said.

He said the finance minister's criticism of his work amounted to criticism of then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee who had entrusted him with key ministries.
The legal notice was sent to them yesterday by the lawyer of Uday Kant Mishra, who is also a long-time friend of the chief minister.
Ansari had said that the Muslims in the country were experiencing a "feeling of unease."
