Bangalore prison corruption case DIG Roopa pays second visit to central prison submits fresh report

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. "A probe must be conducted in this case".

He said, "This shows that those who have money can buy comfort in jail. There must be high level probe on the entire issue and its time that India moves towards jail reforms".

In a report to the Karnataka Government, this week, the officer had alleged VK Sasikala, the chief of Tamil Nadu's ruling AIADMK, is enjoying VIP facilities in prison including an exclusive kitchen. "There's something fishy", Stalin said.

The DIG Prisons said she was ready to cooperate with the investigation called by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

Roger Federer produces an incredible defensive backhand victor against Tomas Berdych
Or the no-look, flicked backhand victor several games later that not many players would even try, let alone manage to do. Federer defeated Czech player Tomas Berdych 7-6 (4) 7-6 (4) 6-4 and now has reached his 11th Wimbledon finals.

Though Rupa has denied going to Press and Media about the issue and expressed her willingness to face the investigation said "I do welcome the impartial inquiry into it I have nothing against anyone. 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.

Days after she alleged corruption and mismanagement in Bengaluru Central jail, Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah has issued a notice to DIG (prisons) D Roopa, asking her not to comment on the matter before the media.

The DG (Prisons) had already rejected Roopa's allegations.

Roopa, in a report to Director General (DG), Prisons, H.N. Satyanarayana Rao, had said there are speculations that Sasikala paid bribe to prison officials to get special facilities for herself with rumours also of the DG, Prisons, being a beneficiary himself. According to the report, Sasikala enjoys a special menu of meals and other privileges, all of which is blatantly against prison rules.
