DIG Roopa, who alleged seniors took bribe for special treatment to Sasikala, transferred
The Karnataka government transferred on Monday deputy inspector general of prisons Roopa D Moudgil, who recently alleged that AIADMK leader VK Sasikala received preferential treatment in Bengaluru Central Prison by paying a bribe.
Moudgil was transferred to the position of inspector general of police and commissioner for traffic and road safety, Bengaluru.
In her controversial report, Moudgil had said she heard allegations that a bribe of Rs 2 crore had been paid by Sasikala to senior prison officials, including director central of prisons HN Satyanarayana Rao, for getting privileged treatment, including a private kitchen
Rao has also been transferred, but without charge, as he is set to retire at the end of the month.
The transfers appear to be a part of ensuring a fair probe. Chief minister Siddaramaiah has announced an inquiry into the matter, to be headed by retired IAS officer Vinay Kumar.
However, the notification for the probe has not yet been issued.
NS Megharikh was posted as the additional director general of prisons. He was ADGP anti-corruption bureau earlier
