The rain-lashed Parliament reconvened on Thursday for the seventh day of this year's Monsoon session after passing the bill against economic offenders amidst criticisms from the Opposition on July 25.

After much debate and deliberation, the Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2018, also known as the anti-trafficking bill was passed in the Lok Sabha today.

Meanwhile, a ruckus was seen in the Rajya Sabha when the house discussed reforms to curb mob lynching incidents that happen due to the spread of rumours and fake news.

Here are the highlights of today's Parliament Monsoon Session:
