Bengaluru: A day after DIG (Prisons) D. Roopa,  accused her immediate superior, the DGP (Prisons) H.N. Satyanarayan Rao with providing V. Sasikala with a private kitchen and other facilities at the Bengaluru Central Prison at Parapana Agrahara in exchange for a bribe of Rs 2 crore, Mr Rao hit back.

Scoffing at the fact that the Ms Roopa did not have the facts as she had not even visited the women’s wing of the prison when she was there last Monday, he dismissed her report as full of  “ill founded and baseless allegations”.

With CM Siddaramaiah promising a probe into the allegations, Sasikala’s lawyer Ashokan also described the report as “baseless”.

Mr Rao said that while Ms Roopa made sweeping allegations of corruption against him and other prison officers, she has not provided any evidence to back her claim.

However, Ms Roopa hit back saying, “I have enclosed some other documents with the letter and they are the proof for the irregularities that are happening in the prison.”
