Sasikala was being given 'VIP treatment', says DIG

V. K. Sasikala Sasikala Natarajan

Roopa D, the first ever woman officer in Karnataka to be posted as DIG Prisons paid a surprise visit to Bengaluru Central Prison.

Sasikala Natarajan aka VK Sasikala is sentenced to serve four years in Parappana Agrahara Jail by Supreme Court in a disproportionate asset case, and now the speculation suggests that the tainted politician has paid a massive sum of Rs 2 crores to jail officials to avail this exclusive treatment.

In the report, Roopa said following her prison visit, Rao issued a notice to her questioning its objective.

While rumours have made rounds regarding special food and services for Sasikala, officials have continually denied the allegations saying she was being treated on par with other prisoners.

The kingpin of the multi-crore fake stamp paper scam, Abdul Kareem Telgi, was provided with an assistant for moving around in his wheelchair. He also said that he was open to probe. "At least 18 of the 25 prisoners who were tested for taking drugs reported positive".

A report addressed to the DG & IGP and the DGP (Prisons), leaked to the media, contains remarks against several prison officials for violating rules by providing additional facilities to some inmates. "From DGP to jail warden are involved in flouting the prison manual", alleged Moudgil.

In her report to the government and the prisons department brass, Roopa has sought an investigation by the DG into the allegations which interestingly include his own administration. Mr. Rao said, "Let the official concerned investigate the matter".

"I have asked her to meet me on Friday and hand over the so-called report from which a news channel is airing her views".

On being questioned on her work and the claim that she has not fulfilled her duty properly, Roopa said she was on a government-sanctioned leave. "I have issued her a memoin regard to a few issues including her not attending the chief minister's review meeting held recently".

It is not just Telgi who gets VVIP treatment but all those prisoners who are willing to shell out money, according to the report. Inmates can get anything they want in Bengaluru Central Prison at Parappana Agrahara albeit at a price.
