D Roopa, the police officer in Karnataka who blew the lid on AIADMK Chief VK Sasikala enjoying VIP facilities in prison in Bengaluru, and her senior officer, have both been transferred.

D Roopa, a Deputy Inspector General, has been transferred to the traffic department.

In a report to the Karnataka government this week, she had alleged that Ms Sasikala had been given an exclusive kitchen. The report referred to "speculation" that Sasikala paid 2 crores for privileges and her boss - state's Director General of Prisons HN Satyanarayana Rao - could have been a beneficiary.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah last week declared that action could be taken against the officer for going to the media, pointing that it was a violation of her service rules.

Ms Roopa denied revealing her report to the media and blamed Mr Rao.
