DIG transferred days after she alleged VIP treatment for Sasikala in jail

The row over alleged VIP treatment to VK Sasikala is only getting bigger with further revelations from DIG Prisons D Roopa's report coming out in the open.

Allegations of the largesse of facilities showered upon Ms Sasikala led to senior police officer D Roopa losing her job yesterday as Deputy Inspector General of Prisons.

On Thursday, the young police woman alleged that Ms Sasikala had bribed senior jail officials with 2 crores for special treatment that included a kitchen that catered meals only for her.

"I didn't speak to media first".

The government, which seems to be on a clean-up drive, has also transferred DIG Krishna Kumar, the Chief Superintendent of the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison, as DIG Roopa's report had several allegations against him.

The government, in its order on Monday, posted Additional Director General of Police N.S. Megharikh as ADGP and IGP (Prisons), replacing DGP H. N. Sathyanarayana Rao.

However, Rao denied them and accused Roopa of gross subordination. He has also been transferred, but without charge, as he is set to retire at the end of the month. Meanwhile DIG Roopa, while talking to leading channel said that she has not received any transfer order as yet.

The officer's report based on her inspection on 10 July, however, leaked out, forcing Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to announce an inquiry into her controversial findings. No special treatment is being given to Sasikala, she told reporters on Thursday.

Roopa holds a post-graduate degree in science and passed her IPS from Davanagere in Karnataka.

According to reports, Mukesh Bhardwaj, the party city president asserted that Thakur's transfer was necessary to lift the morale of the party workers. Former CM and Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy hit out at the Congress government for protecting corrupt officers. "It seems that the government wants to protect the illegal activities and is here to protect the convicts", he said.
