Refuting the claims of DGP Satyanarayana Rao that she had not at all visited the prison, she said that she had recorded the video with a handy cam, which she had borrowed from one of the prison officials in Parappana Agrahara during her visit on July 10. "A probe must be conducted in this case".

In a report to the Karnataka Government, this week, the officer had alleged VK Sasikala, the chief of Tamil Nadu's ruling AIADMK, is enjoying VIP facilities in prison including an exclusive kitchen. It also shows that there are jail authorities or jailors who were bought by money and shows that how the jail administration is corruption ridden. "There's something fishy", Stalin said.

Ms. Roopa had been asked to reply to the notice served on her, the Chief Minister said.

Though Rupa has denied going to Press and Media about the issue and expressed her willingness to face the investigation said "I do welcome the impartial inquiry into it I have nothing against anyone".

The DG (Prisons) had already rejected Roopa's allegations. "We want the probe to be completed at the earliest and if the contents of Roopa's report were found to be true, action will be taken against the guilty", he added.

Roopa has since been under fire by senior officers, including Rao and Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah as they believe she released the report to the media before submitting it for internal enquiry. On Thursday, in a report, Roopa stated that AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala had allegedly bribed senior prison officers including Director General of Prisons (DGP) Satyanarana Rao to set up a private kitchen in the Parappana Agrahara central jail where she's now serving a four year sentence.

Roop had also alleged that not only Sasikala but fake stamp paper scam kingpin Abdul Karim Telgi was also given special treatment inside the jail.

Ms. Roopa said the DGP (Prisons) was the first to talk about the report.
