BJP seeks discussion in Assembly on IAS officer's suspicious death

The BJP has demanded that the state government allow a discussion in the Legislative Assembly on the death of IAS officer Anurag Tewari as many doubts have been raised regarding the incident.

As soon as the House assembled on Thursday, BJP members led by leader of the Opposition Jagadish Shettar requested Speaker K B Koliwad to allow the party to move an adjournment motion against the government regarding the sudden demise of the officer.

Law Minister T B Jayachandra and Koliwad said as already a CBI enquiry is on into the matter, the adjournment motion cannot be moved. Dissatisfied with the reply, the BJP members trooped into the well of the House and demanded that at least they should be allowed to make a preliminary submission on the motion.

Shettar said Tewari had earned a good reputation as deputy commissioner in Kodagu and Bidar. He was known for his commitment to work.

“We are not blaming any minister or officer for his death. But, the chief minister should have spoken to the family members of the deceased officer. He died under mysterious circumstances. There are many doubts expressed about the death. The government must allow a discussion on the case,” he added.  His party colleague C T Ravi said it has been reported that Tewari was not paid salary for three months.

Finally, the Speaker, while disallowing the adjournment motion, allowed the BJP to make a brief mention of the case.
