I have been asked by several persons to comment on D.K. Ravi's death. His body was found hanging on a fan in his flat.
The Karnataka Government claims that preliminary police investigation shows that it was a case of suicide due to personal reasons. But everyone knows that the police in India is not very reliable and trustworthy. Also they are not trained in scientific investigation and do not have the equipment for the same.
Unless it is known positively whether it was suicide or murder what comment can be made ?
All I can say is that taking on the mafia in India is extremely hazardous. They are powerful people with political links.
I am not justifying corruption. All I am saying is that bureaucrats should know their limits. Corruption is too widespread and too deeply entrenched in India for anyone to eliminate it. The person trying to do so is likely to be eliminated.
