The twists and turns continue in the Parappana Agrahara Bangalore Central Jail. It has been nearly a month since former DIG Roopa had revealed the luxurious facilities given to Sasikala gang in the Bangalore Central Jail. But for exposing this, she was awarded with transfer orders by the Siddaramayya government.
Now, IPS officer Roopa has submitted yet another proof in the form of CCTV footage which exposes the extent of facilities provided to Sasikala. Have you seen a prisoner walking out of prison to perform her desired task? Yes, this violation of law was carried out by Sasikala in the Bangalore jail with the help of jail authorities.

DIG Roopa has handed over fresh evidence to the ACB as a part of statement in which Sasikala is seen entering the jail in civilian clothes. How can a prisoner go out of the jail? Forget of going out, how can she wear civilian dress? Now this spreads light of special perks given to the rich prisoners in Bangalore.
In the CCTV footage, it is clearly seen how Sasikala and Ilavarasi, each carrying a bag, entering the prison from the main gate in the presence of male guards.
Officer Roopa said that “Male guards are not allowed inside the women’s prison complex. Their deployment is outside the women’s prison premises at the main gate… it has to be investigated where she (Sasikala) is coming from and who permitted it”.
Following a summons by the ACB, Roopa had submitted 74 enclosures as evidence to substantiate her charges. She received summons on July 31, the day Director General (Prisons) G. Sathyanarayan Rao retired.
The whole issue had come into limelight after IPS Roopa alleged that former DGP (Prisons) Sathyanarayana Rao had received Rs two crore from Sasikala gang in order to provide special facilities, including an exclusive kitchen to cook food for her.
But the Karnataka government transferred her to the position of Deputy Inspector General of Police and Commissioner for Traffic and Road Safety, Bengaluru, while Rao was asked to go on leave.
Sasikala found near MG Road shopping complex in Burqa!!!
A letter by a Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee member claims that he saw Sasikala roaming in MG Road wearing a burqa. The letter requested Karnataka Chief Minister Siddharamaiah to reinstate IPS officer D Roopa as DIG, Prisons.
KPCC Labour Department secretary Muthu Manickam also said that the jail authorities are violating rules and are for lenient towards Sasikala.
He alleged that Sasikala was allowed to wear civilian clothes inside the prison, a car was given to her to leave the jail premises and also arrangements were made for a burqa to cover her identity.
