Senior bureaucrat Bal Kishan Bansal, who was arrested on charges of corruption earlier this year committed suicide at his Madhu Vihar residence in New Delhi along with his son. This development in the case comes two months after the former Corporate Affairs Director General’s wife and daughter committed suicide in their apartment. Here is a timeline of the case:

July 19, 2016: Former Director General Corporate Affairs BK Bansal arrested by the CBI on alleged charges of bribery and attempting to scuttle a probe against a Mumbai-based pharmaceutical company. Arrest made after CBI conducted raids at eight locations related to the case. They had also allegedly caught him accepting a bribe of Rs 9 lakh.

July 22, 2016: Bodies of Satyabala (57) and Neha (27), BK Bansal’s wife and daughter respectively found hanging from their Madhu Vihar residence in New Delhi. Notes found near the bodies said no one was responsible for their deaths, although it is reported that in the notes they stated that the CBI raids had caused “great humiliation” and they did not want to live after that.

August 30, 2016: A special CBI court grants bail to BK Bansal in the corruption case, taking note of the “unfortunate” events that took place in his family. Special CBI Judge Gurdeep Singh observed that taking into consideration the fact that when his wife and daughter committed suicide he was in police custody and he himself was suffering from a medical condition, BK Bansal was entitled to bail.
