ANI  |  Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India] 

An Indian Administrative Services (IAS) officer was found dead in a guest house here on Wednesday.

The deceased, Anurag Tiwari, was a 2007-batch officer who was posted in Food Supply department in Karnataka.

Tiwari originally hailed from Uttar Pradesh's Bahraich.

As per preliminary reports, Tiwari had recently divorced his wife.

Tiwari's cousin Rahul Pandey told ANI that his tussle with his wife had begun right after their marriage.

"We do not have doubts on anybody right now. The rest will be known when other family members also come," he said.

Civil Hospital's medical superintendent Ashutosh Kumar Dubey said it would be too early to reach any conclusion.

"There was an injury mark on his chin. The body has been sent for post-mortem. Only after the reports are out, something can be said," he said.
