DCW issues notice to CBI after Bansal suicide

New Delhi, Sep 29 (IANS) The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Thursday issued a notice to the CBI following the suicide by former bureaucrat B.K. Bansal, his wife and their two children.

“We are not saying whether Bansal was corrupt or not. But the fact that his entire family committed suicide is very sad. We have issued a notice to the CBI Director to ask whether he is going to take action against the (erring) officials and file an FIR,” DCW Chairperson Swati Maliwal said.

Maliwal also sought an independent inquiry into the role of the Central Bureau of Investigation officials alleged to be involved in the torture of the Bansals.

Bansal, a senior officer in the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, was accused of corruption and was being probed by the CBI.

He and his 31-year old son Yogesh committed suicide on Tuesday by hanging themselves at their house in east Delhi. His wife Satyabala, 57, and daughter Neha, 27, committed suicide on July 19.

Bansal named CBI Deputy Inspector General Sanjeev Gautam, Superintendent of Police Amrita Kaur, Deputy Superintendent of Police Rekha Sangwan and Investigating Officer Harnam Singh apart from mentioning an unnamed Head Constable in his suicide note.

“These CBI officers made my family life hell. Although I heard that the CBI is tough but I never heard about such proceedings. My daughter and wife had not committed suicide, it is murder by the CBI,” Bansal wrote in his suicide letter.
