Karnataka Assembly Speaker K.R. Ramesh Kumar suggested that Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy constitute a SIT to probe the audio tape where "a person holding responsible position" made allegations that the Speaker was "booked" for ₹50 crore.
The Speaker told the CM in the Assembly to submit the SIT report in 15 days. Both ruling and Opposition members demanded a probe.
