Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India] July 17 (ANI): Parappana Agrahara Central Prison Jail superintendent Krishna Kumar was transferred on Monday following Deputy Inspector of General (Prisons) D Roopa's transfer to the traffic department.

R. Anitha has been deputed to take his charge.

Earlier today, DIG (Prisons) Roopa, who wrote a report to the Director General (Prisons) H.N. Satyanarayana Rao stating about the irregularities going on in the central prison, was transferred to the traffic department.

Roopa has been transferred to the traffic department as the Inspector General of Police and Commissioner for Traffic and Road Safety.

A recent report by the DIG (Prisons) had asserted that a bribe worth Rs. 2 crore was given to the prison officials by All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) chief V.K. Sasikala for, including the DG (Prisons), in order to avail special facilities in Parappana Agrahara central prison.

Roopa, in a report to the Director General (Prisons), had said there are speculations that Sasikala paid a bribe to prison officials to get special facilities for herself with rumours also of the DG being a beneficiary himself.

In this regard, Siddaramaiah assured that strict action would be taken against the guilty, while taking cognizance of allegations of irregularities in the Bengaluru central prison.

The Karnataka Chief Minister said he has ordered a high-level inquiry into the matter.

On one hand, where the DG (Prisons) categorically denied all the charges, Roopa, on the other, maintained her stand, saying that she has no issue with an inquiry taking place into it.

On July 14, Roopa had also said she is being unnecessarily targetted and singled out for exposing irregularities at the Parappana Agrahara Central prison. (ANI)
