In the latest caught-on-camera revelation, AIADMK leader VK Sasikala, who was sentenced to a four-year jail term by Supreme Court in a corruption case, can be seen entering Bengaluru jail in civilian clothes with a bag in her hand. The CCTV footage was given to Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) by then DIG (Prisons) D Roopa. Sasikala is seen entering the jail in civilian clothes in presence of male guards in the video. The clip serves as a proof to the allegations that were made by D Roopa. She had claimed that Sasikala gets special treatment as a prisoner and nearly 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.
After DIG (Prisons) D Roopa made the accusations against VK Sasikala, she was transferred from supervising jails to handling road traffic in the capital of Karnataka. Roopa’s stunning revelation had created a storm in both Tamil Nadu as well as Karnataka. Sasikala, the AIADMK General Secretary, was sentenced to jail in a disproportionate assets case days after taking over the reigns of the party.
