The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has issued a notice to the Delhi Police in the suicide case of a tainted top government official. The DCW has asked the Delhi Police whether an FIR has been lodged or not in the case and has given 48 hours time to respond.
Former Corporate Affairs Director General B K Bansal committed suicide along with his son last week. He blamed CBI officials probing the corruption case against him for the decision to end their lives. In the wake of the allegations against its officials, CBI had constituted an internal inquiry to look into them.
In suicide notes purportedly written by former Corporate Affairs Director General B K Bansal and his son Yogesh, the official has alleged that a CBI DIG, two women officers and a “fat” Havaldar of the agency had tortured his wife and daughter after which both had committed suicide in July.
PTI had received two suicide notes, a seven-page note purportedly written by Bansal and a two-page note purportedly written by Yogesh dated September 26, 2016, a day before their bodies were discovered in their flat here.
Bansal allegedly hanged himself along with his son at their residence with a purported suicide note claiming “harassment” by CBI, barely two months after his wife and daughter ended their lives following his arrest in the alleged corruption case.
The additional secretary-rank officer in the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Bansal was arrested by CBI on July 16 for allegedly accepting bribe from a prominent pharmaceutical company.
CBI had carried out searches at eight locations in connection with the case during which the agency had claimed to have made cash recoveries.
