UP minister Suresh Kumar Khanna said at the state assembly on Thursday that the decreased Karnataka-cadre IAS officer was on the verge of exposing scams worth thousands of crores. He further claimed that the scam was related to the Congress-led government in Karnataka. This response came amid allegations from opposition benches that Anurag Tiwari (36), posted as commissioner in the department of food, civil supplies and consumer affairs in Bengaluru, was murdered.
“It is true that the body of the officer was recovered yesterday (Wednesday). The post-mortem examination was conducted by a panel of four doctors and as the exact cause of death could not be ascertained, his viscera was preserved”, he said.
The officer was found dead on Wednesday under mysterious circumstances on a side of a road in the high-security Hazratganj area in Lucknow, hardly a kilometre away from the Uttar Pradesh Assembly. The matter of his death was also was raised by Samajwadi Party during Question Hour with its member Nitin Agarwal alleging that the IAS officer was murdered in the high-security area, thus “exposing tall claims of government over law and order”.
Notably, the speaker Hridaya Narain Dixit, however, said the matter could not be raised during Question Hour and asked members to return to their seats.
Tiwari, a 2007 batch IAS officer, was staying at the Meera Bai Guest House in the busy area for the last two days with a batchmate after attending a mid-career training programme at Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie. He was in his sleepwear when he was found dead. Police said there was an injury on his chin and did not rule out that he may have been hit by a vehicle during his morning walk.
