Coming out as a major development in the scuffle between AIADMK and former DIG (Prisons) Roopa, senior officials belonging to the Parappana Agrahara Central Jail in Bengaluru, supported the allegations claimed by the former DIG of jails confirming that the special privileges were extended to AIADMK (Amma) leader VK Sasikala.

Referring to the issue of Dhinakaran returning recently without meeting Sasikala in prison, he alleged it was a "deliberate action" by the authorities concerned to delay and deny him permission. "Our committee has directed the senior officials to identify those jail officials who are involved in the irregularities", a committee member told Deccan Chronicle.

Roopa was transferred to another department in Karnataka Police after a report was submitted.

D Roopa, in her report, also suggested that Sasikala paid Rs 2 crore was paid to avail facilities like five rooms, cot, bed, television and a separate kitchen inside the prison.

Earlier, in a report to the Karnataka Government based on her inspection of the central jail, Roopa had alleged that Sasikala enjoys an exclusive kitchen and other facilities.

"So far, the allegation regarding special treatment meted out to Sasikala and Telgi, as mentioned in the report submitted by (DIG) Roopa turns out to be true. The allegations are being made as local body elections are approaching in Tamil Nadu and I don't understand why this attempt is being made", said Pugazhendi, AIADMK State Secretary for Karnataka.
