Centre okays CBI probe in IAS officer Ravi’s death

The Centre on Monday gave its nod for a CBI probe into the mysterious death of IAS officer D K Ravi after Karnataka government fell in line and sent a fresh notification without any time limit.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) issued a notification to pave way for CBI inquiry into the case, official sources said.

"In exercise of power conferred under the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, the central government with the consent of the state government of Karnataka extends the powers of the jurisdiction of the members of Delhi Special Police Establishment to the whole of the state of Karnataka for investigation of a case registered on March 16, into the unnatural death of D K Ravi in Bengaluru," the DoPT notification said.

The state government had earlier sent a request for a CBI probe into the case with a clause that the investigation should be completed within three months.
