Dissatisfied with probe, Anurag Tiwari's family mulls moving court
Apparently not satisfied with the probe into the mysterious death of Karnataka cadre IAS officer Anurag Tiwari, who was found dead near a guest house in the state capital last month, his family members are contemplating to move the court.
 
According to the sources here on Sunday, the family is likely to file a petition before the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court seeking direction to the CBI to take over the probe forthwith.
 
Although the UP government has recommended a CBI probe into the death of Tiwari, the premier investigating agency has not yet taken over the probe.
 
''The special investigating team (SIT) probe is nothing but a mere formality.....it is not investigating the case seriously,'' a member of Tiwari's family told a senior UP cop here.
 
Tiwari's brother Alok has also contacted the senior UP IPS officer Amitabh Thakur and sought the latter's help in this regard. ''The probe has failed to throw any light on the death so far,'' Thakur's wife Nutan said quoting Alok.
 
A two-member SIT team had recently visited Bangalore to conduct the investigation in the case. The team returned to the state capital on Saturday.
 
Anurag Tiwari, who was the Commissioner, Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Department in Karnataka, was found dead here a few days back. His body was found lying on the side of the road a few metres away from the Guest House.

Tiwari’s postmortem report was inconclusive and the doctors preserved his viscera and heart for further forensic examination to ascertain the cause of death. The death of the IAS officer also triggered a political storm in UP with BJP and Congress getting engaged in a sharp exchange of words.
