New Delhi: CBI will soon seek explanation from its DIG Sanjeev Gautam and his team members in connection with allegations of harassment levelled against them by former DG Corporate Affairs BK Bansal.

Sources said the fact-finding committee set under a Joint Director level officer is looking into the allegations of human rights abuse levelled by Bansal, who had committed suicide along with his son last month.

Bansal, who was facing graft charges, had ended his life on September 27, nearly two months after his wife and daughter had taken a similar tragic step.

In his purported suicide note, Bansal had alleged that Gautam and his team members had harassed his wife and daughter to an extent that they committed suicide. He had alleged that even he was being harassed and wanted to end the life.

National Human Rights Commission had also sought explanation from CBI which has been provided to it.
