Will sue D Roopa if she does not withdraw her charges: AIADMK
The Indian Express
Ruling AIADMK on Monday said it would take legal action against senior Karnataka police official D Roopa if she did not withdraw her charges that party general secretary V K Sasikala was provided special treatment in prison, contravening laws. AIADMK mouthpiece ‘Namadhu Dr MGR’ quoted the party’s Perambur MLA and district secretary P Vetrivel and party’s Karnataka state unit secretary V A Pugazhendi as saying that legal actions would be taken if Roopa did not take back her ‘false charges.’
As DIG (Prison) a few days ago, Roopa had alleged that Sasikala was provided amenities flouting prison rules. Though she was eased out of the prison department subsequently, she continues to stick to her stand. Sasikala is lodged at Parappana Agrahara central prison in Bengaluru ever since her conviction in February in the disproportionate assets case along with her two relatives V N Sudhakaran and Elavarasi, all serving a 4-year jail term.
