Bengaluru, Mar 4: The sex CD involving Ramesh Jarkiholi which forced him to resign as minister, is getting new turns and twists with each passing day. A ten minute clip of the said video was uploaded in YouTube channel on Tuesday March 2 afternoon. The IP address of the YouTube is of Russian origin. But it is not known who uploaded this clip.
The woman at the centre of this storm reportedly used to visit Vidhana Soudha often during the last few months. Officials of Vidhana Soudha told the media persons that the lady was a frequent visitor to the office of Ramesh Jarkiholi at Vidhana Soudha.

The lady often used to kick up conversations with the staff of the Vidhana Soudha. She said she was making a documentary about the water reservoirs in Karnataka and that she needed permission to film the documentary. As she was not getting the permission for use of drones, as reservoirs are protected places, she had come to the minister for help and also seeking employment, she had claimed.
The officials point out that a poor girl cannot be expected to spend money on hidden cameras and make a high level video, edit it, and release it from Russia. The officials therefore dismiss the theory of exploitation levelled against Jarkiholi. They feel that this is a conspiracy that was hatched beforehand by the political adversaries of Jarkiholi.
