DMK, CPI pooh-pooh Sasikala's 'comfort' in jail

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.

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.

The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and the Communist Party of India (CPI) have pooh-poohed the reported "comfort" that former All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) general secretary V.K. Sasikala is getting in jail and said this shows how money can buy comforts in jail. Siddaramaiah said she could have approached her superiors about her charges against senior officials.

The comments were initially said to be off the record, but the White House decided to make them public Thursday. Trump says, "We're like a dumping ground, OK? They've been doing it for decades and I'm stopping it".

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.

Mrs. Roopa further said that the video had all the evidence of preferential treatment meted out to Sasikala and backed her claims she had made in her letter.

D Roopa, an upright senior police officer in Karnataka who blew the lid on irregularities in Bengaluru jail, said it wasn't fair that the Government was singling her out for action on grounds that she had spoken to the media but wasn't acting against others. "Whatever enquiry the Chief Minister has ordered is most welcome". Rao has said the allegations are baseless.
