Karnataka IAS Officer Rohini Sindhuri has issued a legal notice to IPS officer D Roopa over her remarks and demanded an “unconditional apology in writing” and Rs 1 crore in damages “for the loss of reputation and mental agony”. The notice was issued in reference to Roopa’s social media posts where she levelled 19 allegations against Sindhuri, accusing her of sharing her own pictures–even explicit ones–with fellow IAS officers. The notice directed Roopa to apologise for having made the allegedly defamatory comments. The apology should be posted on the IPS officer’s Facebook page and shared with the media. It further stated that Roopa’s comments had put Sindhuri and her family members in “mental agony” and ruined her image in professional, personal and social life. Mysuru-based RTI activist Gangaraju had released the audio of a purported conversation between him and Roopa which alleged a conflict of interest involving Roopa’s husband, IAS officer Munish Moudgil, during his tenure as commissioner of the Department of Survey, Settlement and Land Records.
