Gajanan Mahamandali president D Govindrao in a press release said that if not for Roopa's damning report, the dirty underbelly of the prisons may not have come out in the open.

He had spoken against Roopa's conduct saying it was "absolutely against the rule book and inappropriate on her part to share details with the media". Several other officials have been transferred and Roopa Moudgil has been sent as a process of regular shuffles informed Karnataka government.

On Thursday, the young police woman alleged that Ms Sasikala had bribed senior jail officials with 2 crores for special treatment that included a kitchen that catered meals only for her.

Roopa has been transferred as the Commissioner of Road safety and transport while Rao and Krishna Kumar have not been allocated any new posting.

Additional Director General of Police, Anti-Corruption Bureau, NS Megharikh, was transferred with immediate effect and posted as Additional DGP Prisons.

To this regard, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah assured that strict action would be taken against the guilty and ordered a high-level inquiry into the matter.

"I didn't speak to media first".

Siddaramaiah government had issued a notice to Roopa for going to media with her allegations about special treatment to Sasikala at Parappana Agrahara Central prisons.

Rao, however, denied the charges and welecomed the inquiry into Moudgil's report. She has now been shifted to the traffic department as the commissioner for Road Safety and Traffic, reported news agency ANI.

The Bengaluru prison has been the centre of a controversy involving Sasikala, who is serving a prison term after being convicted in a disproportionate assets case. Abdul Karim Telgi, the kingpin of a multi-crore stamp paper fraud that hit the headlines about a decade earlier, was another. Some complained that they had to pay a bribe to get into good barracks and also that they were assaulted by staff and other prisoners, sources said.
