The probe panel that was investigating the Karnataka porn scandal has tabled its report and two of the three MLAs, CC Patil and J Krishna Palemar, have not been found guilty. However, the committee, set up by the Assembly, has found evidence to merit action against the third MLA - Lakshman S Savadi and has recommended action against him.
The report has also recommended a ban on high-tech mobile phones. The report by the panel has also said a separate TV channel should be set up for the telecast of the assembly proceedings.
On February 7, three ministers were seen watching porn on a cellphone. The incident was captured by the camera crew of a private TV channel that was covering the proceedings in the Assembly that day.
The trio - Lakshman S Savadi, CC Patil and J Krishna Palemar - were forced to resign. All three said they were innocent and were watching a news report on an incident of rape. The phone, it would later turn out, belonged to Mr Palemar.
A committee comprising seven MLAs was set up to investigate the incident.
