DGP for prisons visits Parappana Agrahara jail before inquiry officials arrive

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.

Roopa came into limelight for exposing irregularities in the jail.

Ms. Roopa had been asked to reply to the notice served on her, the Chief Minister said.

Concepta PLC (CPT) PT Lowered to GBX 22 at Beaufort Securities
The Cantillon Capital Management Llc holds 2.49 million shares with $286.78 million value, down from 2.57 million last quarter. The rating was maintained by Shore Capital on Monday, January 9 with "Buy". 50,000 were reported by Horseman Capital Mgmt.


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.

"I welcome the reporting of corruption in the system, but Roopa is going to the media before raising it in the police department. But, repeatedly approaching the media is prohibited and we have issued a notice to DIG (Prisons) Roopa for violating the rules". No special treatment is being given to Sasikala, she told reporters on Thursday.

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. She says that she is willing to co-operate with the probe all the way, but insists that it be thorough and fair.

He said he served in the Soviet Army from 1986 to 1988 after he was drafted but was not trained in spy tradecraft. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov says the Russian government knows nothing about Mr Akhmetshin, the AP reported.


The allegation of bribe was made by DIG (prisons), Roopa, which was promptly allayed by director general (prisons), H N Satyanarayana Rao.

The report submitted by Roopa, apart from the information about Sasikala, also talks about many other illegal instances inside the prison. Roopa, however, completely denies the allegation and insists that she never broke any rules.

The officer's report based on her inspection on 10 July, however, leaked out, forcing Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to announce an inquiry into her controversial findings.
