New Delhi: Amid demands of a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the death of IAS officer DK Ravi, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said that he would comment on it only after getting a report from the Karnataka Government.

"I can comment on this only after getting a report from the state government," he told the media here.

Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju also said that the Centre would look into the matter only after receiving a report from the state government.

"When a report comes from the state government, we will look into it," he said.

The family members of the deceased IAS officer have demanded a CBI probe, suspecting foul play in his killing.

The BJP is also demanding a CBI investigation into the case.

Union Law Minister and former Karnataka chief minister Sadananda Gowda is expected to meet the Union Home Minister later in the day to demand a CBI inquiry into the IAS officer's death.

The Karnataka Government has, however, so far rejected the demand of a CBI probe and asserted that the CID of the state police is capable of handling the investigation in the case.

The 2009 batch IAS officer, who was deputed as the Joint Commissioner of the state's Commercial Taxes Department, was found mysteriously hanging by a fan in the bedroom of his private apartment in South Bengaluru's Tavarekere earlier on Monday.
