After being censured by the opposition parties for entering the Karnataka Assembly hall by violating rules, police on Monday cleared the matter saying they moved in at the request of the Speaker.

"K G Bopaiah wrote to City Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari to take the help of civil police to control the situation that had arisen following unruly scenes that the assembly witnessed," police said in a release here.

Police furnished the copy of Bopaiah's letter addressed to Bidari which states "since the situation is out of control, the civil police help may be taken to control the situation".

Opposition Congress and JDS took strong objection to the presence of police personnel, including Bidari inside the House during the trust vote.
