Bhubaneswar: A day after a local channel caught him on camera while watching porn video indside the Assembly building, Odisha Congress MLA Nabakishore Das was on Tuesday suspended by the Speaker.

Though Das had admitted he accessed Internet in his mobile phone inside the house, he denied watching any obscene video and clarified that the page appeared suddenly while surfing the net.

"I have never seen such video clips. While I was trying to open a web page in my mobile, the video clip on YouTube inadvertently opened," Das clarified.

"I have done nothing wrong. It is a conspiracy against me to tarnish my image," Das said, adding that he was ready to face a probe.

However, the ruling Biju Janata Dal demanded a probe and action against the leader.

Alleging that the Congress member was watching an obscene video clip during question hour, BJD member Pramila Mallick said she will urge the speaker to order an investigation into the matter and take action against the legislator.

"It is very shameful that the MLA was watching obscene clips in the august house. Tomorrow (Tuesday), we will urge the speaker to take strong action against the legislator," said Mallick.
