Two Special Investigation Team officers visited the office of late India Administrative Service (IAS) officer Anurag Tiwari, who was allegedly murdered for being “aware of some big scam” in his department, as claimed by his family.

Tiwari, 36, was found dead under mysterious circumstances near the state guest house on Meera Bai Marg in Lucknow on May 17. He was the commissioner of the food and civil supplies department.

The officers were accompanied by Tiwari’s brother, Manish.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, Manish said he welcome the probe but was not satisfied. “Only an investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation will be able to bring to light the conspiracy,” he said.
