Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government on Monday recommended a CBI probe into the mysterious death of Karnataka cadre Indian Administrative Service officer Anurag Tiwari.

Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar told the media that the government has decided to recommend to the Centre a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation into the case.

Earlier in the day, the officer's family met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and expressed concern over the circumstances leading to Tiwari's death.

They said they suspected murder since the IAS officer was about to expose a major food scam in Karnataka, where he was posted as Commissioner in the Department of Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs.

The Chief Minister assured them of sympathetic view on the matter and said the CBI probe will be considered, a family member said.

Hours later, the government recommended the CBI probe, as demanded by the family.

Anurag Tiwari was found dead on a roadside in state capital Lucknow on Wednesday. On the family's demand, the police have lodged it as a murder case.
