The sources also said the meeting revolved mainly around the sex scandal and the alleged role of Shivakumar and a few others from Belagavi district. Jarkiholi had insisted that the case should be handed over to the CBI for thorough investigation.

It was not clear whether the Chief Minister heeded to the demand. In a press conference on Monday, Jarkiholi had claimed that there are at least 120 sleaze video clippings available involving various officers and politicians who are being blackmailed. He said the issue is very serious and the government should get it investigated by the premier investigation agency.
