According to sources, FIR has not been filed so far as the cops have been considering the fact that the state government has already handed over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The complainant, who has been identified as TJ Abraham, an anti-corruption activist, reportedly filed the case under Sections 306 and 201 of Indian Penal Code.

Section 306 of IPC deals with abetment of suicide and Section 201 deals with causing disappearance of evidence of offence or giving false information to screen offender. [DK Ravi's death was suicide, Govt tells Karnataka High Court]

DK Ravi's family

35-year-old DK Ravi, a 2009-batch IAS officer, was found dead in his official residence in South Bengaluru on March 16.

After initial investigation, Karnataka government and CID claimed that it was a suicide case due to some "personal reason".

However, DK Ravi's family members, Opposition leaders asserted that it was not suicide case and the young IAS officer might have become a victim at hand of some powerful people.


Massive protests were held in Bengaluru and other parts of Karnataka. BJP MPs from the state protested in the Parliament. Congress President Sonia Gandhi intervened into the matter.

Finally, the state government handed over the case from CID to CBI. A team of the CBI from the Chennai wing is likely to take over the probe. Chennai houses the homicide wing of the CBI and hence would conduct the probe.
