GN Bureau | April 6, 2015
Somebody has goofed up and somebody will pay for it. Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday was forced to say that his government would send a fresh request to the centre for a probe by the CBI.
Earlier in the day the Central Bureau of Investigation had turned down Karnataka government's request for a time-bound investigation in the alleged suicide of IAS officer D K Ravi. Karnataka Government had requested for completion of the probe within three months.
The agency had turned down the request of Karnataka Government seeking a time-bound probe in the alleged suicide of Ravi, saying there is no provision in law to complete investigations in a given period.
"They have sent it back, saying that do not put the condition like that. Again we will send it to the CBI," Siddaramaiah told reporters in Bengaluru. Karnataka government officials should have been aware of prevailing political atmosphere and studied the rule of law before putting time limit for CBI probe. If Siddaramaiah had been advised properly, he would have avoided this embarrassment of CBI rejection and fresh request. Siddaramaih heads a Congress government and the CBI is a central agency with BJP in power at the centre.
Opposition parties and activists then mounted pressure on the state government demanding that the investigation in the case should be carried out by the CBI. Ravi's family claimed that he was under "political pressure".
Facing rising public outcry, the chief minister had announced a CBI probe into the death of the officer and asserted that his government never intended to hush up the case or protect anyone.
The death of Ravi, who took on land mafia and realtors, had burst into a major controversy after the chief minister initially refused to seek a CBI probe in the case. The case was being probed by Karnataka CID.
