The Karnataka State Cabinet will meet at 12 noon today to decide a host of issues which includes whether to hand over the case relating to D K Ravi to the CBI or not.
The cabinet meet which was to be held at 4 PM today was pre-poned as there were urgent issues to be discussed and top on the agenda was the D K Ravi case. Sources say that the government may hand over the case to the CBI, but the decision would come through only after a heated debate.
Conspicuous with their absence were the IAS officers from Karnataka who decided to give the funeral of D K Ravi a miss yesterday.
It was quite obvious to note that almost all the IAS officers from the state especially Bengaluru where Ravi was working were not present at the emotionally charged funeral of the dynamic officer.
Even as the government of Karnataka transferred Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Inspector General of Police Pronob Mohanty who was in charge of the D K Ravi case, four IAS officers from the state have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking a CBI probe into the incident.
The government today transferred Mohanty from the CID to the Lokayukta. This has raised many eye brows as the case pertaining to the death of D K Ravi was being handled by the CID.
