Cannot probe under govt. condition: CBI on DK Ravi case


Bengaluru: In a severe blow to the Karnataka government the CBI refuses to probe IAS officer DK Ravi’s death case. The agency said that it cannot initiate investigation under the time-bound condition, set by the Karnataka government.

A 2009 batch IAS officer DK Ravikumar was found hanging by a fan of his bedroom of his apartment in Tavarekere in South Bengaluru on March 16.

He had become extremely popular as the deputy commissioner of Kolar for his works in ridding encroachments and other honest works. He was recently transferred and became the joint commissioner of the commercial taxes department.

Bowing to immense public pressure CM Siddaramaiha had decided to hand over the case to CBI.
