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.
