DIG Roopa report 2: Why no action, boss?

DIG Roopa report 2: Why no action, boss?

"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 also wrote that some officials spoke to the media and made allegations against her but no action was taken against them.

Siddaramaiah, has announced that a committee headed by retired IAS officer, Vinay Kumar, has been formed to look into the allegation of two crore rupees bribery scandal that had reportedly happened at the prisons department to provide undue facilities to beleaguered Tamil Nadu leader, Sasikala.

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

Mrs. Roopa told Deccan Chronicle in an exclusive interview that during her visit to Sasikala's cell, she had video recorded evidence on a handycam, which backed her claims of preferential treatment to Ms. Sasikala but the film was "deleted" by some officials in the prison. "It's not fair", the CM said.

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.

A report by D. Roopa had asserted that a bribe worth Rs. 2 crore was given to the prison officials by Sasikala in order to avail special facilities in Parappana Agrahara central prison.

The question Chief Minister Siddaramaiah needs to answer is - Why shoot the messenger? A few hours after Sathyanarayana Rao left, Roopa turned up along with a sub-inspector and examined CCTV footage and other records of her earlier visit to the prison. No special treatment is being given to Sasikala, she told reporters on Thursday.

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

According to Roopa's report, Sasikala's wasn't the only beneficiary.

In her report submitted on July 12, Roopa also alleged that special favours were granted to stamp paper scam kingpin Abdul Karim Telgi in the prison.
