Directing police to respond within 48 hours, the notice seeks to know the reasons in case the FIR has not been filed yet.

"Whether an FIR for abetment of suicide and other relevant provisions of law has been filed against those named in the suicide note. If not, please provide reasons for the same and the steps being taken by the Delhi Police to ensure filing of the same," the notice says.

Last week, the DCW had issued notice to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) following the suicide by senior bureaucrat BK Bansal, his wife and their two children.

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 27 Sep by hanging themselves at their house in east Delhi. His wife Satyabala, 57, and daughter Neha, 27, had committed suicide on 19 July.

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 for making "my family life hell".
