Lucknow, February 29: Special Judicial Magistrate, CBI Subrat Pathak on Saturday reserved his decision on the ‘Protest Petition’ filed by his brother Mayank Tiwari in connection with the death of Karnataka cadre IAS officer Anurag Tiwari under mysterious circumstances.

The court passed the order after hearing Mayank’s advocate Nutan Thakur and CBI counsel.

The CBI had closed the case stating that the allegations of exposing a major scam by the deceased or fear of death by their senior officers could not be confirmed by oral, written and technical evidence.

Nutan told the court that several important points of deliberation were overlooked by the CBI and that they edited this entire investigation with a prejudicial view with the objective of calling the case an accident. In this process, the CBI brushed aside many facts and evidence, omitted several important forensic evidence and deliberately misinterpreted the post mortem report.

She said that while presenting all the shortcomings of the deliberations in the Protest application, the SP rank officer has been requested to get the inquiry done while canceling the final report.

The CBI advocate said that all aspects of the case were looked into seriously and no suspicious situation was found in the death. He said that the postmortem report was also consulted by the panel of doctors of AIIMS. The order will be passed on March 13, 2020 on the Protest application.
