  • VK Sasikala tried to take control of the party after J Jayalalithaa’s death

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. The evidence created a doubt that whether the 2 convicts went out of the prison in conspiracy with the top prison officials.

The latest leak comes just two days after DIG Roopa submitted 74 enclosures including photos and videos to the Karnataka Anti-Corruption Bureau, which is probing the allegations of special treatment to Sasikala.

Sasikala and her relative were seen in purported CCTV video, coming in from outside.

In a sign that the battle was far from over, she also said she has more information on the irregularities which she would share in the follow-up letter which she would send to the Chief Secretary to the government and the DG and IGP in a day or two.

According to the reports published in The Hindu, when D. Roopa was contacted, it was confirmed that she already gave the evidence to the Anti-Corruption Bureau on Saturday.

The CCTV footage is raising questions whether Sasikala and Ilavarasi were allowed to walk out of the prison by officials. Their duty is outside the premises of women's prison at the main gate.

Sasikala has been in prison since she was convicted in a disproportionate assets case. "It would be a breach of protocol to say anything conclusively when the probe is not over", retired IAS officer Vinay Kumar, who is heading the probe.

Earlier in July, Roopa grabbed headlines when she, in a report, said that Sasikala availed VIP treatment in the prison by bribing jail officials. The letter requested Karnataka Chief Minister Siddharamaiah to reinstate IPS officer D Roopa as DIG, Prisons.
