Bengaluru, July 17

The Karnataka Government today shunted out a top woman police officer who had brought to light the “special treatment” to AIADMK (Amma) leader VK Sasikala in prison and dragged her senior into a bribery row over the matter.

In tandem with the shifting of DIG (Prisons) D Roopa, DGP (Prisons) HN Sathyanarayana Rao was also transferred after they sparred over a report on the allegations in public. The government also shifted Bengaluru central jail Chief Superintendent Krishna Kumar, who was blamed by Roopa for alleged illegal activities in the prison.

As Roopa’s transfer stirred a controversy with the Opposition slamming the move, the government said despite the inquiry being in process, both went to the media. — PTI
