UP police register murder case in IAS officer Anurag Tiwari’s death

UP Police has registered a murder case in the death of an IAS officer Anurag Tiwari, hours after his family members met Yogi Adityanath and demanded a CBI probe

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh police on Monday registered a murder case in the death of a Karnataka-cadre Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer in Lucknow, hours after his family members met chief minister Yogi Adityanath and demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe.

“An FIR has been registered in Hazratganj police station against unidentified persons in IAS officer Anurag Tiwari’s case under IPC section 302 (murder). The complaint was lodged by his brother Mayanak," circle officer, Hazratganj, Avanish Kumar Mishra told PTI.

Earlier, the family members of the officer met the chief minister and pressed for a CBI probe. “We are not satisfied with the police probe. We have requested the CM to recommend a CBI probe," Mayank told reporters.

Tiwari, 36, was found dead on 17 May, his birthday, under mysterious circumstances near a guest house, where he was staying, in the high-security Hazratganj area in Lucknow. His family had alleged foul play. He was posted as commissioner in the department of food, civil supplies and consumer affairs in Bengaluru.

“My son was very honest. Corrupt officers did not like him. They must have somehow got him murdered," Tiwari’s father B.N. Tiwari had alleged in Bahraich, his native place.
