It is said that the government is considering the option of transferring Roopa out of the prison department as she continues to give vent to her opinions in social websites even after having been warned against airing her view on irregularities in prisons in public.

The murky deals in the jail, which was on the rounds for a longtime, came to light and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had ordered ahigh level probe former IAS official. "Targeting me is unfair. If action is to be taken then it should be against all and not just me". The DG shared the details with media and so service rules should apply to all and not on one", she said, adding, "Let there be a fair probe, I will cooperate. According to sources, these prisoners were believed to be helping Sasikala.

"There was a rumour that you are aware of it and were paid Rs 2 crore for this facility". She had also recommended that Jail Superintendent Krishna Kumar be transferred out to some smaller prison in the state.
