- Vinay Kumar Committee was formed to probe the irregularities in the Central Jail after then DIG Roopa alleged of malpractices
- Satyanarayana Rao, then DGP Prisons, allegedly accused CM Siddaramaiah of directing him to provide VIP treatment to Sasikala
- Though the report has been submitted, it is kept in the cupboard. Does the CM have to do anything with this?
Vinay Kumar Committee report formed to probe into the irregularities in the Central prisons of Bengaluru, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was alleged of directing then DGP (Prisons) Satyanarayana Rao to provide a bed, cot and pillow to Sasikala, which the CM has refuted. However, according to the latest reports, a complaint has been filed against retired DGP Satyanarayana Rao. But where is the Vinay Kumar Committee report?
This question was put forth by BJP leader, Udupi-Chikkamagalur MP Shobha Karandlaje in Bengaluru. Though the report has been submitted, why is it not made public? Is this because of the Chief Minister's name featuring in the list of alleged people, she asked.
The FIR on Satyanarayana Rao is based on the claims made by then DIG (Prisons) D Roopa that he was involved in the irregularities inside the Central Jail and was allegedly providing VIP treatment to Sasikala. Surprisingly, the Vinay Kumar Committee report had suggested that probe should be conducted against the complainant DIG Roopa too.
Keeping all this in mind, the question remains, where has the Vinay Kumar Committee report on irregularities in the Central Jail vanished? Is this done with an intention to keep CM Siddaramaiah's name (that features in it) a secret?
