Making it clear that the CBI probe into the death of IAS officer DK Ravi is still going on, the central investigation agency said the officer made only one call to his batchmate and not 44 calls as reported in the media before.

DK Ravi, an IAS officer in the enforcement wing of the state commercial taxes department, was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his Koramangala flat on March 16. The CBI probe has found that unlike the rumours which were spread, Ravi did not call his batchmate so many times linking the case to a failed relationship.

Sources in the CBI told media: “He contacted the batchmate just once, not 42 or 44 times as reported by a section of media earlier.”

The CBI said it could be an effort by vested interests to suggest and mislead the course of investigation. Stating that the probe is still on, the CBI refuted reports in local media that the probe has been completed.

“The probe is still ongoing. We are probing the circumstances under which the death occurred, if there was any foul play or abetment involved. We are still awaiting the findings of the Central Forensic Science Laboratory,” said the CBI in a statement making it clear that there are vested interests involved in the case.

The CBI said: “With reference to reports in a section of media regarding CBI concluding its investigation in the DK Ravi case, CBI would like to state that all aspects/hypotheses relating to the unnatural death of DK Ravi are being enquired into.”
