Notice to Karnataka prison official on leak of Sasikala bribery report

K'taka hounds whistle-blower

"If the officer had documents to support her claims she could have approached the senior officers instead of discussing those things in the media is against the service rule", Siddaramaiah said, adding, "She has been asked to give a reply to the notice", he noted. Roopa had alleged that two crore rupees had changed hands for providing additional facilities to AIADMK general secretary, V K Sasikala, who is now lodged in Parappana Agrahara jail.

The Chief Minister said he has initiated a probe to inquire about the irregularities, however, chided Roopa for disclosing details about the report to the media.

"I welcome the reporting of corruption in the system, but Roopa is going to the media before raising it in the police department".

Roopa also wrote that some officials spoke to the media and made allegations against her but no action was taken against them. "But, the handycam came to me, it was found blank with no videos", she told DC. She says that she is willing to co-operate with the probe all the way, but insists that it be thorough and fair.

K'taka hounds whistle-blower

"This is another feather in the cap of Tamil Nadu Government". But it will take more than Sasikala and her cronies to silence Deputy Inspector General - Prisons (DIG) D Roopa. "As per information, apart from the Rs 2 crore paid by Ms Sasikala for special treatment, every month, Rs 10 lakh had to be paid", he claimed. On Thursday, in a report, Roopa stated that AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala had allegedly bribed senior prison officers including Director General of Prisons (DGP) Satyanarana Rao to set up a private kitchen in the Parappana Agrahara central jail where she's now serving a four year sentence.

VK Sasikala is serving a four-year jail term after being convicted in the Disproportionate Assets (DA) case.

We are in awe of her outspokenness and need the likes of D Roopa to stand up the various Sasikalas of life on all levels of state. "Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who also holds the Home portfolio, talks volumes about transparency and corruption-free administration, but he too lowered the dignity of the Chief Minister's office", the JD (S) leader said.
