Sasikala bribe charge: govt. issues notice to police officer

Sasikala bribe charge: govt. issues notice to police officer

"Jayalalithaa" class="local_link" >J Jayalalithaa's close aide and AIADMK (Amma) general secretary V K Sasikala at Parappana Agrahara jail in Bengaluru. She says that she is willing to co-operate with the probe all the way, but insists that it be thorough and fair.

"Her repeated statements in the media (even on social media) have embarrassed the department".

Earlier in the day, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah ordered an inquiry after the reports surfaced in media.

"Running away from the media would have been misconstrued and therefore I had to clarify as I gave the report".

Mrs. Roopa told Deccan Chronicle in an exclusive interview that during her visit to Sasikala's cell, she had video recorded evidence on a handycam, which backed her claims of preferential treatment to Ms. Sasikala but the film was "deleted" by some officials in the prison.

XP , the gaming-centric programming block on the Disney XD channel, the Smash 4 finals at EVO will be broadcast live at 6 p.m. The action will start at 10am Pacific (1pm Eastern), and will be streamed on a number of Twitch channels.

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.

The report submitted by Roopa, apart from the information about Sasikala, also talks about many other illegal instances inside the prison. According to an article, her long list of being a total badass include arresting Uma Bharti, the then Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh in a rioting case as a Superintendent of Police, withdrawing police personnel unauthorized to be attendants of VVIPs and politicias as Deputy Commissioner of Police in Bengaluru and withdrawing non-permitted police vehicles from the cavalcade of former CM BS Yediyurappa as DCP City Army Reserve. "I will cooperate and the truth has to come out", she said.

Contradicting the claims of the DGP and IGP of Prisons, H. N. Sathyanarayana Rao, that she had not visited the women's prison, Roopa said "I had visited the women's barracks on July 10 and went the cell where the Sasikala has been lodged".

DG Prisons, Satyanarayana Rao, who retires this month-end, has called her allegations "wild and baseless".
