Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday called for a probe into the alleged links between the CBI and BJP chief Amit Shah. This comes after the suicide of tainted bureaucrat BK Bansal, as he in his suicide note had alleged that he was being threatened by the DIG who was backed by “some powerful BJP leader.”
“Read Bansal’s suicide note. Unable to sleep. Sanjiv Gautam (CBI) etc shud be immediately arrested. Their links wid Amit shah investigated. Whole country knows criminal background of Amit Shah. Can India be mute spectator to CBI being turned into an agency of his henchmen?,” Kejriwal tweeted at 3 am Thursday morning.

Bansal had alleged in his suicide note that the DIG had threatened him. “Teri wife aur daughter ka wo haal karenge ki sunne wale kaanp jaayenge (such things will be done to your wife and daughter that it will send shivers down the spine of those who hear of it),” and when the agency was contacted for comments, the CBI spokesperson RK Gaur said, “We have today received communication from Delhi Police enclosing therewith the purported hand written notes of Shri B K Bansal, then DG(Ministry of Corporate Affairs), Government of India, and his son Shri Yogesh Bansal. It contains allegations against certain CBI officials in connection with the on-going bribery investigation against Shri B K Bansal and others.”
BJP spokesperson Shrikant Sharma said, “So many people claim to know somebody, and then when they come face-to-face, the claim falls flat. How can you prevent anybody from dropping names? So many frauds misuse the name of our office.”
Bansal was found hanging along with his son Yogesh in their Madhu Vihar house in Delhi Tuesday. Earlier this year in June his 58-year-old wife, Satyabala, and 28-year-old daughter, Neha, too killed themselves in a similar manner on July 19, three days after he was arrested by the CBI.
