Sex scandal hits K’taka, BJP MLA says will not contest assembly poll

A CD allegedly showing Karnataka BJP law maker Raghupathi Bhat in sexual acts has surfaced, prompting him to announce that he would not contest the 5 May assembly polls in the state.

Bhat, a second-time law-maker from Udupi, about 400km west of Bangalore, however, denied he is the man shown in the CD and sought a probe to establish the truth.

State Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Pralhad Joshi told reporters here that the party would take action only after it is proved that the man in the CD is Bhat.

Bhat told Kannada TV channels from Udupi that he too had received a copy of the CD only late Wednesday and he suspects a ‘political conspiracy’ against him.

The channels did not telecast the CD on the ground that it was too explicit.
