Belagavi/Bengaluru: Questioning as to why is Siddaramaiah government embarassed to accept the report on illegalities of Parappana Agrahara jail submitted by Prison’s DIG D Roopa, former CM, H D Kumaraswamy lambasted the government for transferring her from the post and said he was quite seemingly predicted that the government would tranfer this whistleblower-DIG in this case. An unceremonious transfer of Roopa only reflected government’s intentions to protect the corrupt and those indulged in illegal acts, he lamented while stating that the government was not keen on sincerely finding the truth behind the entire jail episode.

The CM who also holds the Home portfolio transferred Roopa as DIG Traffic Control while Satyanarayan who served as DG Prisons sent on indefinite leave even as he was at the fag end of his tenure. He raised serious objections to the way most of rich inmates got the VIP treatment in the jails and blamed the government straight for it.
