Bengaluru: IPS officer D Roopa and her senior officer have both been transferred. DIG Roopa, who exposed corruption in Bengaluru central prison and pointed to Rs 2 crore alleged bribe by AIADMK chief V K Sasikala to jail officials, has been shifted to road safety and traffic. She has been posted as commissioner for Road Safety and Traffic.
Roopa has been in the spotlight after she pointed to speculation about jail officials, including her senior and director general of police (prisons) HN Sathyanarayana Rao, having received a bribe of Rs 2 crore to provide special treatment to AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala.
However, the allegations were denied by Rao and jail officials.
