BENGALURU: Two days after Special Investigation Team (SIT) officials from Uttar Pradesh visited deceased IAS officer Anurag Tewari’s residence in Bengaluru, retired IAS officer M N Vijaykumar has raised doubts about an impartial probe by the SIT and Karnataka government.
Vijaykumar has written to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs,  Department of Personnel and Training and other officials concerned in the central government demanding that the case be handed over to the CBI.

Vijaykumar and his wife Jayashree Vijaykumar, an activist, said, “When we went there, a few junior officials from the Food and Civil Supplies Department, a police sub-inspector from Karnataka and a couple of SIT officials were present. None of the four doors of the house were opened. But SIT officals took signatures from those present there on a paper, which said they conducted a search. Also, there were no videographers or any forensic experts. This raises more suspicion over their unprofessional manner of investigation,’’ Vijaykumar said.
