CBI will soon be submitting the report of its internal probe in the suicide case of former Corporate Affairs Director General B K Bansal and his family members to National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). The agency has also sought clarification from the Centre whether Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), a body constituted under state law, has authority to summon its officials. DCW had last week asked the Assistant Inspector General (P) of CBI to present himself today before the Commission in connection with the suicide of Bansal’s wife and daughter in July this year.
CBI sources said while they had responded to the summons issued by the DCW, whether the panel can summon officials of a central government investigation agency needs to be clarified.
CBI is conducting an internal probe under a Joint Director who is not in a chain of command and its report will soon be submitted to NHRC, they said.
The agency is ready to respond to questions raised by statutory bodies but needs clarification on sending its officials on the summons issued by a body created under state government law, they added.
60-year-old Bansal was arrested on July 16 for allegedly accepting bribe from a prominent pharma company. Three days later, his wife Satyabala and daughter Neha committed suicide.
