Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs from Karnataka today protested outside Parliament, demanding a CBI probe into the death of young IAS officer D K Ravi in Bangalore, and slammed the Congress government in the state over the issue.

The protest by BJP MPs was organised near the Gandhi statue before the Parliament session began in the morning.

It comes a day after a delegation of BJP MPs from Karnataka, led by Chemical and Fertiliser Minister Ananth Kumar and Law Minister Sadananda Gowda, met Home Minister Rajnath Singh, demanding a CBI probe into the death of IAS officer D K Ravi.

Thirty-five-year-old Ravi, Additional Commissioner of Commercial Taxes (Enforcement), was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his room at his flat in Bangalore on Monday, with police suspecting it to be prima facie a case of suicide.

Former Karnataka Chief Minister and Lok Sabha MP B S Yeddyurappa said the party will seek permission from Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to raise the issue in Lok Sabha.

He asked why the Congress government of the state is “hesitating” to refer the matter to CBI when parents of Ravi have been holding demonstrations seeking a probe by the central agency.

“It’s high time that the state government takes a decision and hand it over to CBI,” Yeddyurappa said.

Ananth Kumar, an MP from Bangalore, had yesterday alleged that Bangalore Commissioner of police was pre-judging the death of Ravi by announcing it as suicide.
