The speaker ordered that the probe in the matter should be finished within 15 days as his name is also taken in the audio tape issue.
Kumaraswamy had released an audio clip in which state BJP president BS Yeddyurappa is purportedly trying to lure a JD(S) MLA.
Just a few hours before presenting the state budget in the Karnataka Assembly on Friday, Kumaraswamy had held a press conference and told media persons about the audio clip while targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the same.
Launching a fresh attack on the BJP over charges of horse trading in Karnataka, the Congress on Saturday alleged that Yeddyurappa had offered a total of around Rs 200 crore to 18 of its MLAs, in an attempt to destabilise the ruling coalition in the state.
