In suicide note, ex-bureaucrat BK Bansal accuses 3 CBI officers for driving family to commit suicide

BK Bansal, former Director-General of Corporate Affairs, who along with his 25-year-old son committed suicide on Wednesday, named three CBI officers in a note for allegedly torturing his family — wife, son and daughter, CNN-News18 reported.

Two suicide notes have been found with regards to the case. In a two-page suicide note written by Bansal's son, Yogesh, he has clearly stated that he was mentally harassed by the CBI officers, reported CNN-News18. While Bansal's 7-page suicide note claims that the torture by CBI officers led to his wife and daughter's suicide.

The father-son duo have mentioned the names of the CBI officers in the note and Bansal has requested that the named officers should undergo a lie detector test. The CBI has now constituted an internal probe to look into the allegations of torture.

In July, the CBI had arrested Bansal on charges of corruption. The CBI said that they had caught him accepting Rs 9 lakh in cash from a pharmaceutical company that wanted to buy its way out of an investigation for illegal business practices.

Bansal's wife Satyabala, 58, and daughter Neha, 28, committed suicide in July right after Bansal was sent to CBI custody.

CBI had justified Bansal's arrest was made as per law and due procedures of the agency as has been done in other bribery cases in the past. The reaction of the agency had come in the backdrop of observations made by Special CBI Judge Gurdeep Singh that CBI needs to "rethink" whether it is necessary to arrest accused in such cases.
