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. "But, repeatedly approaching the media is prohibited and we have issued a notice to DIG (Prisons) Roopa for violating the rules".
In this, she asked why no action has been taken on the first report sent by her, according to sources in the Prisons Department who are privy to the report. Though the Karnataka High Court had acquitted her, the Supreme Court on February 14, 2017 upheld the conviction and sentencing.The Home Department has also set up a one-man inquiry committee after Chief Minister Siddaramaiah ordered a probe into the report."The committe will be headed by retired IAS officer Vinay Kumar and file an interim report on the".
Following the allegations levelled against DGP Satyanarayana Rao, in her explosive letter, DIF Roopa said that a few officials in her own department were trying to destroy the evidence she had collected during her inspection. "I received the handy cam but there were no videos in it", she added. She says that she is willing to co-operate with the probe all the way, but insists that it be thorough and fair.
"I didn't speak to media first". Roopa, who was recently appointed DIG (prisons) has submitted a report to DGP (prisons) H N Sathyanarayana Rao, alleging that she had heard rumors that the DGP was paid Rs 2 crore to ensure that Sasikala receives VIP treatment.
In her second report, Roopa is said to have mentioned that some of the CCTV footage that would prove her allegation that special treatment was being meted out to some inmates was erased.
