Demands CBI probe into Ravi's death

In the leadership of MLAs, the BJP leaders in the district, urged the government to hand over IAS officer D K Ravi's death case to CBI.

Staging a protest in front of DC’s office in Madikeri on Friday, MLA K G Bopaiah, MLA Appacchu Ranjan, district BJP Unit President Mandepanda Suja Kushalappa, General Secretary A Manu Uttappa and other leaders urged for the CBI inquiry.

The protestors alleged that the government is unnecessarily adamant on CID inquiry, even when the parents of D K Ravi are demanding CBI probe. They questioned why the CM was hesitating to handover the case to CBI. They meanwhile condemned the stand of Home Minister K J George.  MLA Appacchu Ranjan alleged that the state government is trying to bury the issue. They warned of intensifying the fight within the assembly.

Loss to nation
Deputy Commissioner Anuragh Tewari termed the death of IAS officer D K Ravi as a loss to the nation.

He recalled that Ravi was his junior by two years and Ravi often shared his thoughts of public welfare programmes with him.

He always thought about the welfare of poor and had chalked out many programmes for weaker sections, Tewari said.

The DC further said that Ravi, who hailed from a financially weaker family, made it to the post of IAS officer, through hard work. Despite his busy schedule, he used to guide IAS candidates every Sunday. His death is a loss to the Nation and not only to the state, Tewari added.
