New Delhi: A bureaucrat who committed suicide along with his entire family has blamed the CBI directly for harassment and accused senior officials of abusing and torturing his wife and daughter. The group of officers named by him will now be investigated by the CBI, the agency has said. The allegations unearthed in the suicide note of BK Bansal.
BK Bansal, who hanged himself with his son in their Delhi house yesterday, wrote in his suicide note that a CBI investigator bragged, “Your future generations will be scared of my name.”
Two months ago, Bansal’s wife and daughter had hanged themselves in the same apartment while he was in jail.
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. Two days later, his wife Satyabala and daughter Neha were found dead. In their suicide notes, they wrote of being humiliated by the CBI during raids at their home to uncover evidence.
Bansal was last interrogated by the CBI on Monday along with his son, Yogesh. 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, 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.” Bansal was reportedly informed of this by his neighbours after he was granted bail.
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.
