Demand for #CBI probe for #IAS Officer DK Ravi's suspicious death

Mysterious death of upright and honest Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer D K Ravi, who took on the real estate mafia, has angered the people of Karnataka at large. Ravi, who was Joint Commissioner of Commercial Tax Department, was found hanging and dead at his apartment yesterday. After taking charge as Additional Commissioner of Commercial Taxes (Enforcement), he cracked down on major companies that were evading tax. In a few months, well-known firms were raided. Even an international bank was also raided.
Departed IAS officer DK Ravi raided big business groups including Embassy, Rajesh Exports, Shubh Jewellers, RMZ Institution, Prestige Group, Raheja Group and Mantri Developers across Karnataka and confiscated the encroached government land. He took on the sand mafia and had put an end to it in Kolar during his term there.
