NEW DELHI: Three days after Director General of Corporate Affairs BK Bansal was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with a bribery case, his wife and daughter committed suicide by hanging themselves at their residence on Tuesday.

Bansal’s 58-year-old wife Satya Bala and daughter Neha (28) were found hanging from the  ceiling fans of two separate rooms at Neelkanth Apartment in Delhi’s Madhu Vihar area.

The suicide notes stated that the CBI had raided their house thrice in over 14 hours. 

However, the CBI refuted the allegation. The agency said in a statement: “We are deeply shocked and saddened by the incident. It may be mentioned that both the deceased were neither accused nor questioned or summoned in the ongoing investigation.”

Deputy Commissioner of Police Rishi Bal declined to confirm that the suicides were related to the arrest of Bansal.
