Bangalore: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Nehru Olekar, who is a member of the panel that is probing into the Karnataka Assembly porn scan, has said that not just three, but as many as 15 MLAs watched porn in the Karnataka Assembly.

The panel member also said that those watching porn included not just MLAs of the BJP, but also members of the Opposition.

Reacting to the allegations, Congress MLA Krishna said that it was an attempt by the BJP to shift the blame on other parties.

This comes days after the probe panel had questioned two TV channels that had filmed the BJP MLAs watching porn in the Karnataka assembly.

Both the Congress as well as the media had criticized the move by the panel to summon the editors of the television channels.

Three BJP MLAs – CC Patil, Lakshmana Savadi and Krishna Palemar – who were caught watching porn in the Karnataka Assembly were earlier barred from attending the Assembly till the probe into the matter was over.
