Former Bureaucrat BK Bansal’s suicide note has left behind a lot of questions, and most of them threaten to open the Pandora ’s Box. If his last account is to be believed, Shah is the alleged mentor to his speculated tormentor CBI DIG Sanjiv Gautam.
Bansal time and again alleged atrocities and torture by the hands of “those who occupy senior positions” and his inquiry was marred with such references. On 26 September Bansal, a Corporate Affairs ministry official, committed suicide along with his 31-year-old son Yogesh after his wife and daughter had already taken the drastic step on July 19. Bansal wrote that Gautam ordered the two female officers in his team to torture his wife and daughter so much that they are “almost dead”
The question that arises here is: He remained strong even after the death of his wife and daughter and remarked “life goes on” so what was the trigger that made him take the final step. In his suicide note, Bansal names Sanjiv Gautam and links Gautam to one of the most powerful men in the country – BJP President Amit Shah.
Bansal said that he received threats by Chaudhary, “I’m Amit Shah’s man. Who can touch me? What I will do to your wife and daughter that hearing their treatment will send shivers down people’s spine…”
On 18 July his home was raided his residence and the raid lasted till 5 AM on the morning of the 19th. By 1:30 PM, his wife and daughter had killed themselves and written in the suicide note that “they had lost the will to live.”
“Even if I was at fault in the case, why were my wife and daughter pushed to suicide by CBI officials?…This wasn’t a suicide, it was the murder of two women,” BK Bansal wrote.
Another fact is that his parting words are admissible in the court of law as evidence in a case of abetment to suicide against Gautam. But no case has been registered so far.
