A top police officer, who came out with a controversial report on alleged special treatment in jail to AIADMK (Amma) leader V K Sasikala, has been served a notice by the state government asking her to explain why she reported the issue to the media.

“It is absolutely against the rulebook,” Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said, expressing open displeasure over public comments by Deputy Inspector of General (Prisons) D Roopa on her report, which has also brought her superior and other prison officials under a cloud of bribery allegations. Siddaramaiah said she could have approached her superiors about her charges against senior officials.

Puducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi, herself a former IPS officer, however, praised the “courage” of the senior Karnataka police woman.
