Did Sasikala leave Bengaluru prison in civilian clothes? Roopa's video proves so

End of Sasikala's Chapter?

Video footage has emerged of AIADMK supremo VK Sasikala entering Bengaluru's Parappana Agrahara Central Prison in civilian clothes. The CCTV cameras had been installed to check the activities at the entry gate of the women prisoners barrack, and it captured on camera, Sasikala leaving the women's barrack and walking to "B" gate through Outer Circle road, to the interview room. According to the newspaper, she received summons from the ACB on July 31, 2017, and appeared before the investigating officers a couple of days later and received a questionnaire.

Also known as Chinamma, Sasikala was sent to jail after she surrendered before a trial court in Karnataka capital. She had claimed that Sasikala gets special treatment as a prisoner and almost 2 crores of bribes were paid by her so that she could have privileges like special meals, a cell kitted out with a flat-screen TV and other comforts.

Manickam requested the Chief Minister to initiate criminal cases against Sasikala, Sathyanarayana Rao, former DGP (prisons), Krishna Kumar, former Chief Jail Superintendent and Anitha, the then deputy Jail Superintendent.

In support of their charges, she had provided 74 enclosures.

This might complicate matters for Sasikala, who has also been accused of running the ruling faction of the AIADMK from prison.

Earlier reports based on CCTV footage from Central Jail, Bangalore, raised questions over whether prison authorities had allowed prisoners, V.K. Sasikala, and her aide, Ilavarasi, to leave the jail premises. He requested the CM to transfer D Roopa, now the DIG and Commissioner for Traffic and Road Safety to DIG, Prisons to initiate reformation of the jail administration.

Meanwhile, DG Prisons NS Megharikh told a section of the media on Monday that he was not aware of the footage.

The whistleblower IPS officer submitted the footage as part of her statement to the ACB. "Once the commission submits the report, we will know what exactly happened in the prison".
