Karnataka cadre IAS officer Anurag Tewari‘s death was mainly due to seizure according to the initial autopsy but his brother decided to file Murder case and also alleged that he was about to expose a big scam. In the FIR, it was also mentioned that his life was under threat according to the reports.
The development came after Yogi Adityanath met the family of the deceased on Monday.
After meeting the Chief Minister, Anurag’s sister-in-law Shubhra had said that Adityanath asked them to wait for the SIT report after which he would take a call on the CBI investigation.
IAS officer Anurag Tiwari was found dead outside Meera Bai VIP guest house in Hazratganj area of Lucknow. He was staying at the guest house for two days with a batchmate.
He stayed in room number 19. LDA vice-chairman and Tiwari’s batchmate P.N. Singh had booked the room in his name and he was with him the night before his death.
On the day of his demise, while Singh went to play badminton at 6 a.m. at a Gomtinagar stadium, Tiwari stepped out for a morning walk. He had barely covered a distance of 300 m from his room when he collapsed on the road.
According to reports, Tiwari died of a seizure after he suffered from a fit, however, the final decision would be taken post the results of autopsy reports.
Tiwari, an engineer by qualification, became an IAS officer in July 2007.
A native of Bahraich district, Tiwari was last posted as food and civil supplies commissioner in Bengaluru.
