K’taka HC stays tabling of CID report
The Karnataka High Court on Sunday stayed the tabling of the CID’s interim report on the mysterious death of IAS officer DK Ravi by the state government in the legislature on Monday till the inquiry was completed. At a special hearing at his residence here, Justice Adbul Nazeer directed the state government and the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) not to make statements on the interim report or table it in the Legislative Assembly.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had decided to table the CID’s interim report in the Assembly on Monday and share with lawmakers the findings of the investigation into Ravi’s death, which police prime facie said was a case of suicide. The order was passed on an emergency writ petition filed by the husband of a woman IAS officer whom Ravi had reportedly called many times and sent messages to her mobile phone before allegedly hanging himself from a ceiling fan at his apartment here on March 16.

Passing the order under Article 226 of the Constitution, the judge also served an emergency notice to state Chief Secretary Kaushik Mukherjee, the CID and the director general of police (DGP) to appear in his court on Monday afternoon for further hearing on the petition.
