Karnataka Govt orders CBI Probe into IAS Officer DK Ravi Death

Bengaluru, March 23: Bowing head to the demands of various groups, Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah finally ordered a CBI probe into the mysterious death of IAS officer D K Ravi.

The protests by people from all groups forced the CM to hand over the case to the CBI despite his unwillingness. Earlier, the case was given to the CID of the state police. Even he rejected the suggestion of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who asked him to hand over the case to the central agency CBI.

While the mystery still remained in the death of the young IAS officer in the state, the government maintained that he committed suicide for personal reasons.

The victim's family sat on dharna demanding the CBI probe. The family members claimed that Ravi was killed, and this was not a suicide case.

Ravi was found hanging from a ceiling fan at his apartment on March 16 in Bengaluru. The police termed it a case of suicide.

Ravi was posted at the Commercial Tax department and was an obstruction for the sand mafia, real estate majors and the big jewellers, who had been evading taxes for years. He had raided at the offices of several firms.
