Reportedly Sasikala and Ilavarasi had a corridor to themselves in the Bengaluru Central Prison when they were lodged there in 2017 and they had free movement inside the prison and they met visitors for several hours at a time, completely against the prison rules. Meanwhile these were allegations made by IPS officer Roopa in mid-2017, and the one man commission that was constituted to probe her claims has vindicated her.

Furthermore among the irregularities found by the Vinay Kumar commission is an entire corridor with five rooms being left empty for Sasikala’s use, under the guise of providing security to her. Further photographic evidence of D Roopa had probed allegations of food being prepared for Sasikala inside the jail other than in the jail kitchen. Also the photographs showed presence of cooking vessels including a pressure cooker in her cell.

Moreover IPS Roopa had told the commission that Sasikala met her visitors in a separate room on the first floor of the building which had a table, a revolving chair, four other chairs and curtains. Moreover based on his investigations, Vinay Kumar concluded that while a special facility in the first floor room, for interview of prisoners with their visitors, had existed since April 2016 several months before Sasikala was jailed a separate register was maintained since February 2017 only for Sasikala.
