Former bureaucrat BK Bansal, who was arrested in a corruption case, committed suicide along with his son at his residence in Delhi’s Madhu Vihar area on Tuesday.

The duo hanged themselves, and left separate suicide notes, saying the “CBI raid” caused “great humiliation” and they did not want to live after that.

They, however, held nobody responsible for their death.

Bansal, an additional secretary-rank officer in the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, was arrested by CBI on July 16
for allegedly accepting bribe from a prominent pharmaceutical company.

The CBI had carried out searches at eight locations in connection with the case during which the agency had claimed to have made cash recoveries.

He was later arrested but released on bail.
