Bengaluru, May 19: U T Khader, Minister for Food and Civil Supplies, has said that IAS officer Anurag Tewari, who was posted as the commissioner of the department, had not brought any scam in the department to his notice.UTK 2

The minister was responding to queries on the statement by Tewari’s brother Mayank that the officer was about to expose a major scam. Tewari was found dead near Lucknow on May 17 under mysterious circumstances.

“He (Tewari) never mentioned about any scam in the department. He was also in charge of the Karnataka Food and Civil Supplies Corporation. If there was any such scam, he would have brought it to my notice,” Mr Khader said.

Mayank had said honest officers were being targeted in Karnataka and suspected that his brother was one of the victims.

He claimed that Anurag was about to expose a scam worth over Rs 2,000 crore in the state. Anurag’s family members have been suspecting foul play.

Sources in the department said Tewari had not mentioned any major scam in any of the official correspondences with the government. He used to take leave very often, it is said.
