IAS officer died last week under mysterious circumstances and now his family members are seeking the probe by the central agency.

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.

Earlier in the day, the officer’s family, including the brother and sister-in-law, met the Chief Minister 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.
