Earlier, the family members of the officer met the chief minister and pressed for a CBI probe.

"We are not satisfied with the police probe. We have requested the CM to recommend a CBI probe," Mayank told reporters. Tiwari, 36, was found dead on 17 May, his birthday, under mysterious circumstances near a guest house, where he was staying, in the high-security Hazratganj area here. His family had alleged foul play. He was posted as commissioner in the department of food, civil supplies and consumer affairs in Bengaluru.

"My son was very honest. Corrupt officers did not like him. They must have somehow got him murdered," Tiwari's father B N Tiwari had alleged in Bahraich, his native place.
