New Delhi: Former bureaucrat Bal Kishan Bansal, who was arrested under corruption charges, committed suicide in his Madhu Vihar residence in New Delhi, news agency ANI reported. Bansal reportedly killed himself along with his son. His wife and daughter had earlier committed suicide by hanging themselves from the ceiling fans at their residence in Nilkanth apartments when he was arrested by the CBI in July. Bansal had been the Director General of Corporate Affairs before being arrested on alleged charges of bribery. According to the charges, he was attempting to scuttle a probe against a Mumbai-based pharmaceutical company. The CBI had also allegedly caught him accepting a bribe of Rs 9 lakh. A special court had later granted him bail in August. Special CBI judge Gurdeep Singh had observed, �Keeping in view the factum of unfortunate happening in his family, where his wife and daughter committed suicide when he was in police custody; he himself is suffering from a medical condition; his only son is in depression and the fact that Anjun Saxena is yet to be arrested and particularly the peculiar circumstances of the case, I am of the opinion that the accused is entitled to bail� Speaking on his son�s depression, Bansal had told the judge, �My son is sitting like a statue. I fear he too will do what his mother and sister did.�
