The Siddaramaiah-led Congress government has also transferred four other senior IPS officers along with Roopa.

Karnataka CM and RoopaBENGALORE: In the aftermath of a report submitted to Karnataka DGP by DIG (Prisons) D. Roopa alleging

irregularities in the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison in Bengaluru, the State government on Monday

transferred her out of the Prisons Department to the post of DIG, Commissioner for Traffic and Road

Safety, Bengaluru.

This comes on a day senior retired bureaucrat Vinay Kumar is expected to begin a probe into the alleged

irregularities in the prison, including special facilities being extended to AIADMK general secretary

V.K. Sasikala and kingpin of the stamp paper racket Abdul Karim Telgi.

The government issued notices to Ms. Roopa for violating the service rules and going public over

allegations against other senior officials. Incidentally, she took charge as DIG (Prisons) only on June

21.

Sources said that Director General (Prisons) H.N. Satyanarayana Rao, against whom Ms. Roopa has cast

aspersions in her report, also submitted a report to the government alleging that the source of ill

will between prison officials and Ms. Roopa stemmed from her dissatisfaction over division of work

between senior officers in the department. He too has been transferred; however, the government is yet

to indicate which department he has been transferred to.

Other key transfers



The government has posted N.S. Megharik as Additional Director General of Police (Prisons). He was

ADGP, Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) and a former Bengaluru Commissioner.

In another significant development, State intelligence chief M.N. Reddi has also been shunted out in

less than four months after he took charge of the key position. The sources said that Chief Minister

Siddaramaiah was unhappy with the ”mishandling” of law and order situation in Dakshina Kannada

district, apart from how the prison row went out of hand, embarrassing the government.

Mr. Reddi has been posted as DGP, ACB.
