ABVP, AAP seek CBI probe into Ravi's death

Protests continued over the mysterious death of IAS officer D K Ravi on Thursday in the City with ABVP and Aam Admi Party workers staging separate protest rallies seeking a CBI probe into the incident.

A large number of ABVP workers gathered at Anand Rao Circle and took out a protest rally. They wanted Home Minister K J George to meet them and give an assurance on CBI probe.

The ABVP associate organising secretary Vinay Bidare said that political and real estate interests played a role in the death of Ravi. “The needle of suspicion points to  George himself. A CID probe cannot ensure transparency. Hence, a CBI probe should be ordered or a special team should be constituted for the purpose,” he said.

Police blocked the protesters when they proceeded towards George’s house for a picketing. They were taken into into preventive custody and later released.

The Aam Admi Party workers formed a human chain demanding a CBI probe into Ravi’s death, in front of the Town Hall, in the evening. They blocked the road and blamed the Congress for Ravi’s death.

AAP leader Ravi Krishna Reddy said  that the Home Minister was trying to mislead and divert attention by making statements that domestic troubles provoked Ravi to take the extreme step.

A CBI probe would throw more light upon such practises and a few ministers would go to jail if the CBI probe is ordered, he added.

The protest during the evening peak hour led to traffic jam and the traffic police had a tough time in ensuring order on the roads. The police took about 50 protesters into preventive custody and shifted them to Adugodi police station.
