Complainant in C T Ravi case alleges harassment

The complainant who has filed a case against BJP MLA C T Ravi in the Special Lokayukta Court, has alleged that he is being harassed by the authorities in Chikmagalur.

The complainant, R Devi Prasad, had alleged that Ravi had obtained civic amenity sites in his wife Pallavi Ravi’s name, through fraudulent means and had also obtained multiple housing sites. The case is being investigated by the Lokayukta police.

On Tuesday, Bharath Kumar, counsel for the complainant, submitted that Chikmagalur Urban Development Authority had refused to part with documents that were sought under the RTI. 

The counsel submitted that the urban body had declined to give the information stating that they were not a public body and hence they did not have to provide the information sought. The counsel also submitted that the authorities were ‘arm-twisting’ Devi Prasad after the private complaint was handed over to the Lokayukta police for investigation.

Judge N K Sudhindra Rao has directed the complainant to file an affidavit in this regard. The matter has been posted to March 16.
