Sasikala CCTV footage in Bengaluru prison

A video footage at the main entrance of Parappana Agrahara central prison in the city reveals that V K Sasikala and her imprisoned relative, Ilavarasi, who are found wearing normal clothes, are returning to the prison. Anita was transferred to Dharwad Prison in July following DIG D Roopa's report alleging VVIP perks given to Sasikala.

It, however, does not throw light on when it was recorded or which part of the jail it is from. In the letter, he alleged that Sasikala was allowed to wear civilian clothes inside the prison, a vehicle was given to her to leave the jail premises and also arrangements were made for a burqa to cover her identity. The video grab, said to have been submitted by former DIG (prisons) D Roopa to ACB, shows both Sasikala and Ilavarasi walking near an entrance, carrying handbags and in plainclothes. 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.

This fresh evidence points to a possible collusion between the convicts and the prison officials.

She had levelled the charges in a report to her superior, DGP (Prisons) H S Sathyanarayana Rao. The footage also shows Sasikala coming and going out of the Prison.

The notice further said that Roopa also alleged that Sasikala had set up a private kitchen, where special food could be made for her, but as she failed to take snaps of the place, it only shows that the place was "non-existent" although she (Roopa) claims that the evidence was erased.

After Roopa and Rao indulged in a public spat over the report, the Karnataka government had shifted her as Deputy Inspector General of Police and Commissioner for Traffic and Road Safety, Bengaluru, while Rao was asked to go on leave.
