Lucknow | The Uttar Pradesh Police on Sunday has filed a new FIR in the alleged murder case of an Apple executive, Vivek Tiwari on the complaint of his wife.
Earlier the Police have filed an FIR in the name of Vivek Tiwari’s colleague who was present at the time of the accident which tried to prove that the accused police officers didn’t open fire at the Apple executive. Both the accused constables have been suspended by the Police administration.
Vivek Tiwari, the regional manager of the multinational company ‘Apple’ had died on 28 September after being shot by a Uttar Pradesh Police constable during a police-check in Lucknow. According to reports, the incident took place at around 1.30 am at the Gomti Nagar Extension area after Tiwari allegedly refused to stop his SUV during the police checking. Tiwari reportedly died of injuries at the hospital in Lucknow.
Tiwari’s co-passenger in her filed report had denied the UP Police’s claim. She said, ”The police just waylaid us and tried to stop us forcefully. Sir(Vivek Tiwari) didn’t stop the car. We didn’t realise who they were. There was no accident. We were trying to leave from the side. We hit the bike but they had already gotten off the bike. One of them had a lathi. The man in the front just pulled out a revolver and fired.”
Uttar Pradesh deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Sunday met the wife of Vivek Tiwari and CM Yogi Aditynath assured all possible help to the family of Vivek Tiwari. Meanwhile, the case has been transferred to the Special Investigation Team (SIT) for further investigations.
