The party wanted a high-level probe into the incident, BJP national secretary H Raja told reporters in Coimbatore.

Though the Karnataka government has ordered an inquiry into the episode, BJP wanted an high level probe into the incident, since another senior AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran was facing serious charges of conspiring with an alleged middleman to bribe election commission officals to get the 'Two Leaves' symbol for his party, Raja said.
