Karnataka sleaze row: Bangalore Police to submit report

Bangalore: The Bangalore police is expected to submit an official report on a court's orders on the Karnataka Assembly sleaze case. Three former BJP ministers were caught watching a porn clip on a mobile phone while the Assembly was in session.

Krishna Palemar, Lakshman Savadi and CC Patil resigned after the case came to light.

CC Patil and Lakshman Savadi were caught watching an obscene video on their mobile phones on Tuesday while the Assembly was in session. A regional TV channel aired the footage of the duo watching the clippings when the Assembly was debating the issue of hoisting of Pakistan national flag in a town in Bijapur district on the New Year's day.

The footage showed Savadi watching the video and later joined by Patil for a brief while.

Savadi had earlier tried to explain away the controversy saying the video was a "value addition" for a discussion on the rave parties that happened during a tourism festival in coastal Karnataka.

"I have done nothing wrong and I will not resign. I was watching a foreign rave party scene sent by one of my colleague minister Krishna. I did it to understand what rave party means," Savadi had said.
