CBI to take over investigation of Anurag Tiwari's death
CBI may soon take over the investigation of the mysterious death of Karnataka cadre IAS officer Anurag Tiwari, who was found dead near a guest house in the state capital last month.
 
According to the sources here, a notification to this effect may be issued shortly. ‘’CBI is likely to take over the investigation very soon,’’ said a police official here.
 
Sources said that the central investigating agency appears to have made up its mind to take over the investigation after reports that the family of the officer were contemplating to move the court seeking a direction to the CBI to start the probe.
 
UP government has formed a special investigation team (SIT) to investigate the death. The SIT had visited Bangalore and met the officials besides visiting Tiwari’s house there. It had apprehended that Tiwari might have died of ‘’drug overdose’’.
 
The family members of Tiwari had said that the SIT was not investigating the case seriously.
 
Tiwari, who was 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.
