New Delhi: A group of BJP MPs from Karnataka met Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday and requested him to ask Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to recommend a CBI inquiry into the death of a young IAS officer in Bengaluru.

The home minister assured them that he would look into the case, an official said.

D.K. Ravi, a 36-year-old additional commissioner in the state commercial tax department, was found dead on March 16 in his official apartment. His wife found him hanging from a ceiling fan.
