Probe Amit Shah’s links with CBI officials: Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday demanded a probe into the alleged links of BJP President Amit Shah with CBI officers and officials named in the suicide note of senior bureaucrat B.K. Bansal.

“Read Bansal’s suicide note. Unable to sleep. Sanjiv Gautam (CBI) etc should be immediately arrested. Their links with Amit Shah investigated (sic),” Kejriwal tweeted.

Corporate Affairs Ministry officer Bansal, who committed suicide along with his son at his house in Neelkanth Apartments in east Delhi on Tuesday, claimed in his suicide note that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officers not only tortured him but also his wife and daughter, which drove them to suicide as well on July 19.

The suicide note, accessed by IANS, named CBI Deputy Inspector General Sanjeev Gautam, Superintendent of Police Amrita Kaur, Deputy Superintendent of Police Rekha Sangwan, Investigating Officer Harnam Singh and an unnamed Head Constable for “murdering his wife Satyabala, 57, and daughter Neha, 27”.

The suicide note — a copy of which was also widely circulated on Twitter — cites DIG Gautam as claiming that he was “Amit Shah’s man”. “The whole country knows (the) criminal background of Amit Shah. Can India be mute (a) spectator to CBI being turned into an agency of his henchmen,” Kejriwal tweeted. On Wednesday, Kejriwal expressed shock over the suicides of the Bansal family and said that the media should tell the full story.

“Absolutely shocking. Are we living in a democracy? More shocking is the media’s reluctance to tell the full story,” Kejriwal tweeted while referring to an earlier tweet that alleges “conspiracy by Amit Shah” against B.K. Bansal.

Bansal and his 31-year-old son Yogesh were found hanging in their Patparganj apartment on Tuesday morning. Bansal’s wife Satyabala, 57, and daughter Neha, 27, committed suicide by hanging on July 19 after Bansal was questioned by the CBI in the bribery case.
