Karnataka is again in the news for the wrong reasons… Sasikala, former AIADMK leader, who is serving jail sentence has reportedly paid a Rs. 2 Crore bribe to receive VIP treatment inside the jail – which includes an exclusive kitchen, special visiting hours. Another prisoner Abdul Karim Telgi convicted stamp paper forgery scam is receiving regular body massage from 3 other convicts “assigned to him”.
