Three former Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party ministers, who lost their jobs over watching porn film clippings on mobile when the assembly was in session, on Thursday submitted their replies to the show cause notice slapped on them by Speaker K G Bopaiah.

The trio -- Laxman Savadi, C C Patil and Krishna Palemar sent in their separate replies to the speaker and their respective aides handed over them to Assembly Secretary, Om Prakash.

Prakash told PTI that the replies submitted in sealed cover would be forwarded to the speaker.

Bopaiah told reporters that the replies by the three former ministers had reached his secretariat and he was yet to take a look at it.

Bopaiah is expected to form a six-member house panel to probe the episode that took place inside the state assembly on February seven.

He said he would take a decision on the formation of the committee to probe the matter and also on consulting opposition Congress and Janata Dal Secular, which have already decided against nominating their members on the panel.

While Savadi and Patil face allegations of watching the sleazy clippings, Palemar is accused of supplying them to Savadi.
