Gandhinagar: In the eye of a storm for allegedly watching porn inside the Gujarat assembly, BJP MLA Shankar Chaudhary on Monday demanded that the mobile phone used to capture the act also be impounded and sent for forensic examination.

Chaudhary, MLA from Radhnapur, said this while making a statement during the discussion on the budgetary demands of the departments of Social Justice and Empowerment and Sports, Youth and Cultural activities.

"Like I gave away my iPad for scrutiny on moral grounds, the mobile phone on which the video recording (of the two MLAs watching something on iPad) was done should also be impounded and sent for scrutiny," Chaudhary said.

Pleading innocence, he said, "Satya ko aap pareshan kar sakte ho, satya ko hara nahi sakte (Truth can be harassed but not defeated)."

Chaudhary along with BJP MLA from Sehra Jetha Bharwad are facing a probe by the Privileges Committee of the assembly for allegedly watching obscene pictures on an iPad during the proceedings after a journalist from a vernacular newspaper complained about the incident to the speaker on March 20.

The Speaker had then ordered seizure of the iPad belonging to Chaudhary and sent it to the Forensic Science Laboratory for examination.
