In this, she asked why no action has been taken on the first report sent by her, according to sources in the Prisons Department who are privy to the report. "I have ordered a high-level inquiry into the allegations and will take action once the committee submits its report".

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.

She accused her senior officials of taking Rs. 2 crore as a bribe from AIADMK general secretary V.K. Sasikala in return for preferential treatment. "But, the handycam came to me, it was found blank with no videos", she told DC.

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.

The DIG Prisons said she was ready to cooperate with the investigation called by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. The report referred to "speculation" that Sasikala paid Rs 2 crores for privileges and her boss Rao could have been a beneficiary.

The firm had revenue of $2.71 billion during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $2.78 billion. The same analysts are predicting that the company shares will trade to $6.75 within the next 12-18 months.

The question Chief Minister Siddaramaiah needs to answer is - Why shoot the messenger? On Thursday, in a report, Roopa stated that AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala had allegedly bribed senior prison officers including Director General of Prisons (DGP) Satyanarana Rao to set up a private kitchen in the Parappana Agrahara central jail where she's now serving a four year sentence.

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.

DIG Roopa said that the video had evidence of special treatment meted out to Sasikala. She is serving a four-year jail sentence for corruption.

We are in awe of her outspokenness and need the likes of D Roopa to stand up the various Sasikalas of life on all levels of state.

Roop had also alleged that not only Sasikala but fake stamp paper scam kingpin Abdul Karim Telgi was also given special treatment inside the jail.
