New Delhi: Congress chief Sonia Gandhi has written a letter to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah urging him to recommend CBI probe into the mysterious death of IAS office DK Ravi.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh has also reportedly spoken to Siddaramaiah advising that the state should opt for a CBI inquiry.
According to media reports the state government has decided to change its stand on this issue and it may now agree to handover the probe to CBI.
Today, the Opposition members once again created uproar in the Karnataka Assembly demanding a CBI probe in the incident. Following this, the Assembly was adjourned till Monday 11 am.
The latest development came after CM Siddaramaiah’s earlier decision to refuse demand of CBI probe. He had said, “This is not a case to be handed over to CBI.”
35-year-old Ravi, a popular bureaucrat for being honest and gutsy in taking on the sand and land mafia and tax evaders, was found hanging from a ceiling fan at his room in a flat here on Monday evening.
On Thursday, IAS officers from state had signed an online petition to Narendra Modi to press for their demand of CBI probe.
The case is currently with the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
