Bangalore: Even as the mystery surrounding the death of 35-year-old IAS officer DK Ravi continues, his father-in-law H Hanumantharayappa on Saturday denied any problems between the two families.
“There is no personal problem between his family and mine,” Hanumantharayappa was quoted as saying by ANI.
The remarks were made in the backdrop of media reports claiming that the IAS officer was facing personal issues before his death.
“If there is involvement of anyone else, the truth must be known,” he further said.
Reiterating the demand for a CBI probe, he lauded Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's letter to Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah asking him to hand over the case to the investigating agency.
Even the opposition parties had demanded a CBI probe into the incident suspecting it to be a case of murder.
The Karnataka CM has said that he will speak to the parents of DK Ravi after the post-mortem report is out.
Ravi, a 2009 batch Karnataka cadre IAS officer, was found hanging at his Bangalore residence on Monday.
