CBI sources said a detailed report has been submitted to NHRC which had issued notice to the agency.

Bansal’s wife and daughter had committed suicide in July, nearly three days after Bansal was arrested by CBI while allegedly accepting bribe to favour a pharma company

Two months later, Bansal who was released on bail also committed suicide along with his son.

In the suicide note, Bansal made serious allegations against CBI DIG Sanjeev Gautam and his team members for torturing his wife and daughter and also threatening action against him and his son.

The CBI which received a notice from National Human Rights Commission in this regard had set up an internal inquiry under a joint director to look into allegations.
