A discussion on the Protection of Human Rights (Amendment) Bill, 2019, took a bizarre turn in the Lok Sabha on Friday, 19 July, after BJP MP Satypal Singh attempted to disprove Charles Darwin's theory of evolution in Parliament.

The former Mumbai police chief dismissed the 'man evolved from ape' theory and instead dished out his own, based on what he claims to be 'culture'.
