The DCW, a body constituted under state laws, had summoned a CBI official in the matter relating to the suicides of Bansal’s wife and daughter in July this year.
The commission had asked the AIG(P) of the agency to present himself on Tuesday before it in connection with the suicides.
CBI sources said that while they had responded to the summons issued by the DCW, whether the panel can summon officials of a central government investigation agency needed to be clarified. The agency is ready to respond to questions raised by statutory bodies, it said.
