Bengaluru: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a closure report with the Assistant Commissioner calling IAS officer D K Ravi’s (34) death as “suicide due to personal reasons”.
The officer D K Ravi (34) died in March 2015.
A team of officials, who conducted a probe, filed a 90-page report with Assistant Commissioner D.B. Natesh, according to sources.
The CBI took over the case to ascertain whether it was a homicide. The handing over of the case to the Central agency was preceded by a political storm in Karnataka, with the Opposition accusing the State government of trying to protect those behind the 2009-batch IAS officer’s death.
However, the CBI’s probe concluded that there was no foul play, and the death was from asphyxiation due to hanging. Sources confirmed, the suicide was due to personal reasons and hence there would not be any FIR filed.
The report had been submitted to Mr. Natesh who, in turn, would file the same with the Madiwala police station to close the case, sources said.
