The issue was raised on Thursday in the ongoing session of the Karnataka Assembly. Lawmakers from the opposition BJP walked into the well of the House to highlight the case.
Leader of the opposition, Jagadish Shetter of the BJP said, "I agree, the investigation (into the death) has been handed over to the CBI for investigation. His commitment to his work is spoken of by everybody. I am not making allegations against any minister, or against any IAS officer. I am only saying the chief minister should listen to the grievances of the family members."
Tewary's family is in Bengaluru to try and piece together what happened and if there was any Bengaluru connection to the death. The matter has been handed over to the CBI by the UP government. The young officer's brother, Mayank, was at the Vidhana Soudha.
Mr Khader said, "They have faith in the inquiry. The report has not yet come. Overall, the family must get justice, we also want justice for our department's government officer - it is up to the UP government."
