BK Bansal, a bureaucrat who committed suicide on Tuesday, along with his entire family, had blamed CBI directly for harassment in his suicide note. It states that Bansal was being abused, harassed by senior officials and torturing his wife and daughter. The name, which have been surfaced in the suicide note, will now be investigated.
BK Bansal, wrote in his suicide note that the officers told him, “Your future generations will be scared of my name.”
The 59-year-old Bansal, was arrested on July 17 while he was a senior officer in the Corporate Affairs Ministry on charges of accepting a nine-lakh bribe from a Mumbai firm in exchange for dropping an inquiry against it. His wife Satyabala and daughter Neha were found dead two days later his arrest. In their suicide notes, they wrote of being humiliated by the CBI during raids at their home to uncover evidence.
The agency said today in a statement, “We have today received the handwritten notes of BK Bansal and his son Yogesh Bansal from the Delhi police today. We have examined the matter and decided to probe the allegations. If any violation is established, strict action will be taken against the CBI officers mentioned and the competent court will be informed.”
In his death letter, Mr Bansal wrote that while he was in jail, two women officers from the CBI slapped his wife and daughter while their boss urged, “Torture these women so much that they are almost dead.” Mr Bansal was reportedly informed of this by his neighbours after he was granted bail.
Mr Bansal wrote that when he asked the senior officer not to harass his wife, he responded, “If I don’t torture, I can’t be an officer.”
The day after he was arrested, he wrote in his suicide note, “These lady officers told my wife that they will chop me and my son into pieces and feed them to dogs.”
Along with the three officers named by him, two mentioned in his son’s suicide letter will be examined by the CBI.
Two months ago, Mr Bansal’s wife and daughter had hanged themselves in the same apartment while he was in jail.
