CBI probe may begin in 2 days

CBI probe may begin in 2 days
Bengaluru: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Hyderabad, which covers Karnataka, may take two more days to begin probe into the mysterious death of IAS officer D.K. Ravi.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is likely to hand over its status report, the physical evidence collected, including electronic devices, and the analysis reports conducted by the Cyber Forensic Science Laboratory, Madiwala, to the CBI.

The CID has also recorded the statements of Ravi’s family members and of the woman IAS officer, who spoke to him last.

The CBI officials are expected to go for a reanalysis of all digital evidence at the Central Forensic Science Laboratory, Hyderabad, and also summon Ravi’s family members, colleagues and all those who spoke to him 24 hours before his death, for questioning.

The forensic medicine experts at Victoria Hospital, who conducted the autopsy, are yet to submit their final report. Though they have submitted a preliminary report, they are waiting for the viscera analysis report, which is yet to arrive.

The viscera has been sent to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory, Hyderabad, which will now be submitted to the CBI, said sources. The viscera analysis is key to determine the time of death and if he was poisoned.

Second autopsy?

The CBI, in many past cases, has opted for exhuming the body and conducting a second autopsy. Former CBI officials said considering the controversy and allegations of a cover up by the State government in the case, the CBI may conduct a second autopsy.
