Roopa with other officers
The senior police officer said she had no axe to grind and if she had anything to hide, "I wouldn't have taken the step of exposing (irregularities in jail)".
D Roopa, the senior Karnataka officer who faces action after her report alleging AIADMK chief VK Sasikala enjoyed VIP facilities in a Bengaluru prison was leaked, isn't backing down.
The report accessed by the media said Sasikala, who is serving time for corruption in Bengaluru's Central Jail, even had food from a special kitchen. Siddaramaiah said she could have approached her superiors about her charges against senior officials. She has been issued notice for speaking to the media.
The allegation of bribe was made by DIG (prisons), Roopa, which was promptly allayed by director general (prisons), H N Satyanarayana Rao.
"As I said before, I stand by my report". Though the Karnataka High Court had acquitted her, the Supreme Court on February 14, 2017 upheld the conviction and sentencing.
"The committee will be headed by retired IAS officer Vinay Kumar and file an interim report on the charges of bribery and other irregularities in the central jail in a week and the final report in a month", added the official.
Siddaramaiah said he has ordered a high-level inquiry into the matter. "That is why we have issued a notice to Roopa (Moudgil) for violating the rules", Siddaramaiah told reporters at Mysuru. In fact the DG prisons (Rao) disclosed everything about the report, so if conduct rules apply to me it should apply to everyone", She noted further "And secondly, if I am being interviewed and did not say anything, the media would have misconstrued it by saying that I am avoiding.
