A tainted top government official, who committed suicide along with his son yesterday, blamed Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials probing the corruption case against him for the decision to end their lives.
In the wake of the allegations against its officials, CBI today constituted an internal inquiry to look into them.
In suicide notes purportedly written by former Corporate Affairs Director General BK Bansal and his son Yogesh, the official has alleged that a CBI DIG, two women officers and a "fat" constable of the agency had tortured his wife and daughter after which both had committed suicide in July.
PTI today received two suicide notes, a seven-page note purportedly written by Bansal and a two-page note purportedly written by Yogesh dated September 26, 2016, a day before their bodies were discovered at their residence in East Delhi.
CBI Spokesperson RK Gaur said the agency has received a communication from Delhi Police in which the suicide notes have been attached.
He said an inquiry has been ordered to look into the allegations and the court will be informed.
In the note purportedly signed by Bansal, it is alleged that that his wife and daughter had shared the details of "torture" with friends and neighbours before taking the extreme step.
He alleged that the CBI DIG also claimed that he was close to a politician of the ruling party and dared Bansal to do whatever he wanted.
Bansal alleged that the women officers slapped his wife even as the DIG abused her over phone and threatened to torture Bansal who was in CBI custody.
He said, "even if I was at fault in the case, why were my wife and daughter pushed to suicide by CBI officials."
"This cannot be termed as suicide. It is a murder of two ladies," he said, adding that the DIG and the "fat" Havaldar should be subjected to lie detector test to know the truth.
Bansal also urged the Director CBI to probe the matter as the DIG had threatened him before the suicide of his wife and daughter that "they will be subjected to such a torture that they will ask for death but won't get it".
