Being targeted for exposing irregularities at Parappana Jail: DIG Prisons Roopa

Being targeted for exposing irregularities at Parappana Jail: DIG Prisons Roopa

"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.

Meanwhile, D Roopa Moudgil, DIG (Prisons) of Karnataka, who exposed the VIP treatment being given to AIADMK leader VK Sasikala, on Friday alleged that she was being singled out by the State Government for doing her job. 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.

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.

"We will inquire into her allegations, but she speaking repeatedly to the media is against service rules", Siddaramaiah told media here.

While Rao has categorically denied all the charges, Roopa has maintained her stand and said that she has no issue with an inquiry taking place into it. "But, the handycam came to me, it was found blank with no videos", she told DC.

"This is another feather in the cap of Tamil Nadu Government".

Karnataka's feisty IPS officer D Roopa is not letting the dust settle in her feud with her boss, director-general (prisons) H N Sathyanarayana Rao.

As reported by the New Indian Express, Rao visited Parappana Agrahara Central Prison in Bengaluru and ordered some changes to be made in the prison.

The question Chief Minister Siddaramaiah needs to answer is - Why shoot the messenger?

DIG Roopa said that the video had evidence of special treatment meted out to Sasikala.

This is not for the first time that the claims of preferential treatment to Sasikala have been raised.

Sasikala, a lifelong companion of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, has been in jail since February.

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

On Saturday, three days after she kicked up a storm with a report highlighting irregularities and corruption in Bengaluru's Parappana Agrahara Central Prison, the deputy inspector-general (prisons) sent another report to her superior officer. Ms. Roopa also said that besides a special kitchen, Sasikala was provided with a separate gallery to meet her visitors.
