Bengaluru, March 22: Kartaka will on Monday release a prelimiry report on the findings of the state CID probe into the mysterious death of IAS officer D.K. Ravi. “The chief minister (Siddaramaiah) will share details of the CID report into Ravi’s death with lawmakers in the legislative assembly on Monday and recommend handing over the case to the CBI for further inquiry,” an official told IANS here on Sunday. The probe by the Crimil Investigation Department was ordered on March 17, a day after 36-year-old Ravi was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his apartment. Police had termed it a case of suicide for “persol reasons”. Though the state government rejected a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the case despite public outrage and vociferous demands by the opposition parties, the ruling Congress appears to have relented following the advice of its party president Sonia Gandhi to transfer the sensatiol case to the country’s premier investigating agency. Sharing the concern of Ravi’s family, especially his parents, who also staged a protest at the state secretariat on March 18 demanding a CBI probe into their son’s death, the chief minister said justice would be done at any cost.
