Bangalore: A court here on Monday granted time
till March 7 to the petitioner, who has sought prosecution of
three former Karnataka ministers caught in the porn scandal,
to file his objections to the police affidavit.

8th Additional City Metropolitan Magistrate Kiran Kini
accepted the plea of petitioner Dharmapal Gowda seeking time
to file objections to the February 15 affidavit filed by
Vidhana Soudha Police.

In the affidavit, police had contended that the
petition
was not "maintainable" on the ground that Gowda had not sought
permission from Assembly Speaker K G Bopaiah to prosecute the
trio, who are MLAs.

Laxman Savadi, CC Patil and Krishna Palemar resigned
on February 8 as Ministers a day after the incident which was
caught on camera by two regional TV channels.
