Coming as another development in Sasikala bribegate case, a video footage has surfaced in which VK Sasikala can be seen directing the Parappana Agrahara Central prison officials and also not wearing the jail uniform.

In the video, one can see chairs, furniture and other items which Sasikala is not supposed to keep.

The video has surfaced days after Deputy inspector general (DIG) of prisons D Roopa, the whistleblower had exposed the VVIP treatment given to former AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala at the Bengaluru jail.

However, the Karnataka government on Monday transferred IPS officer D Roopa after she exposed alleged corruption and irregularities involving jailed Sasikala in a Bengaluru prison.

An official order said Deputy Inspector General Roopa “is transferred with immediate effect and posted until further orders” as the Inspector General of Police and Commissioner for Traffic and Road Safety.

Speaking on the matter, Janata Dal (Secular) leader Tanveer Ahmed said that an independent judicial enquiry should be done in this case.

Former Karnataka DGP GA Bawa said, “If pictures are true, then an enquiry in this regard should be done and necessary action against the concerned authority should be taken.”
