Former prime minister Manmohan Singh on Sunday said there should be an investigation into the report of bugging devices having been found in Union minister Nitin Gadkari's residence and asked Government to explain the issue in Parliament.

"If ministers' houses are bugged, then it is not a good omen. It should be investigated. How can it happen? it should be explained by the Government in the House," he told reporters at an Iftar get-together hosted by Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

A media report has claimed that high power listening devices were found in the bed room at the 13 Teen Murti Lane residence here of Gadkari, the road transport and highways minister. Gadkari dubbed the report as "highly speculative".

"Reports in a section of the media about listening devices having been found at my New Delhi residence are highly speculative," Gadkari said on his Twitter account.
