  • A screen grab of the purported video of Sasikala

The CCTV clipping was part of a statement Roopa had submitted to the ACB which had sought her to reply to a questionnaire on her charges that the Central Prison officials had connived with Sasikala, now undergoing imprisonment after being convicted in a disproportionate assets case.

Sasikala's sister in-law Elavarsi, who was also convicted and sentenced, was also seen walking behind her with a handbag.

On the other hand, a video has emerged showing that Sasikala was getting VIP treatment in the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison in Bengaluru, where she is serving a jail term after she was convicted in a disproportionate assets case.

Further, Sasikala has allegedly been using several rooms in the prison complex as a yoga room, TV room, a special kitchen and also a living room with air conditioner.

After DIG (Prisons) D Roopa made the accusations against VK Sasikala, she was transferred from supervising jails to handling road traffic in the capital of Karnataka. "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", Roopa said, according to the report. She had claimed that Sasikala gets special treatment as a prisoner and almost 2 crores of bribes were paid by her so that she could have privileges like special meals, a cell kitted out with a flat-screen TV and other comforts.

She had levelled the charges in a report to her superior, DGP (Prisons) H S Sathyanarayana Rao. And given that she was entering the prison, it claims to show she was even allowed to leave jail!

DG Prisons Nahar Singh Megharikh told the media today that he was not aware of the footage. He requested the CM to transfer D Roopa, now the DIG and Commissioner for Traffic and Road Safety to DIG, Prisons to initiate reformation of the jail administration. "Once the commission submits the report, we will know what exactly happened in the prison".

The whistleblower IPS officer submitted the footage as part of her statement to the ACB.
