In the memorandum, it is stated that as Deputy Commissioner of Kolar, D K Ravi had taken on the sand mafia and land encroachment. His action had invited the wrath of those allegedly involved in illegal acts. Last October, the government transferred him as additional commissioner commercial taxes department. D K Ravi, who took strong action on the sand mafia in the district, had allegedly received threat calls before his death. In his tenure in the commercial taxes department, Ravi had ensured collection of taxes to the tune of over Rs 100 crore and had forced several top builders and jewellers in Bangalore to pay up the dues.

“The government must find out who is involved in the death of an honest and upright officer like Ravi. We need a free and fair probe to find out who or what lobby is responsible.
