Anurag Tiwari's family members to meet Rajnath
In an attempt to expedite 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, the family members of the officer will be meeting union home minister Rajnath Singh.
 
According to the sources, Tiwari's family will soon approach the aides of Singh, who is also a Lok Sabha member from Lucknow Parliamentary constituency, to seek a meeting with the latter.
 
Sources said that the family members of the officer were sore at the delay on the part of the CBI in taking over the probe of the case from the Special Investigation Team (SIT).
 
They feel that the delay may result in the destruction of crucial evidence in the matter.
 
The family's decision to seek an audience with the union home minister comes amid reports that the CBI may soon take over the case. UP government had almost immediately after the death of the officer recommended for a CBI inquiry.
 
UP government has formed a 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.
