The CCTV clipping was part of a statement Roopa had submitted to the ACB which had sought her to reply to a questionnaire on her charges that the Central Prison officials had connived with Sasikala, now undergoing imprisonment after being convicted in a disproportionate assets case.

The footage shows Sasikala and her sister-in-law Ilavarasi carrying bags and apparently entering the Parapanna Agrahara Central Prison, where Sasikala is serving a sentence in the disproportionate assets case, after a guard opens one of the gates.

It, however, does not throw light on when it was recorded or which part of the jail it is from.

She alleged that the 60-year-old Sasikala was receiving royal treatment in the women's cell. The footage is of Sasikala and Ilavarasi walking out of B-gate en route the visitors' room.

Manickam requested the Chief Minister to initiate criminal cases against Sasikala, Sathyanarayana Rao, former DGP (prisons), Krishna Kumar, former Chief Jail Superintendent and Anitha, the then deputy Jail Superintendent. Chief Minister E K Palaniswami is also likely to pass a resolution against Sasikala that will remove her from the ruling AIADMK party of which she took charge after the death of J Jayalalithaa in December 2016. Following her allegations, Roopa was transferred to the transport and road safety department on 17 July.

The letter also said that Sasikala and Elavarasi had used the official vehicle of the jail authorities to go out of the prison after dark. On Saturday she submitted her answers in writing along with photographs and video footage.

Meanwhile, DG Prisons NS Megharikh told a section of the media on Monday that he was not aware of the footage. "Once the commission submits the report, we will know what exactly happened in the prison". Sasikala, friend and aide of former CM Jayalalitha, is now serving four-year jail term at Parappana Agrahara Central Prison in Bengaluru after she was found guilty of corruption by the Supreme Court.
