Anuj Saxena granted bail in Bureaucrat bribery case

New Delhi [India], Mar. 3 (ANI): Television actor Anuj Saxena, accused in a graft case, has been granted bail by the Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in which senior bureaucrat B.K. Bansal and his family committed suicide last year.

Saxena was remanded to three days police custody earlier on February 17 after he surrendered before a Delhi Court.

According to the CBI, Saxena had purportedly played a direct role in bribing Bansal.

Bansal in his alleged suicide note mentioned that his family was tortured by the CBI. He had named several persons including CBI DIG Sanjeev Gautam, Superintendent of Police Amrita Kaur, Deputy Superintendent of Police Rekha Sangwan, investigating officer Harnam Singh besides an unnamed head constable for making his family's life "hell".

Earlier in July last year, Bansal was apprehended by the CBI on corruption charges. Hours after he was produced in the court, his wife Satyabala and daughter Neha were found hanging in two separate rooms at their residence in Neelkanth Apartments on July 22 last year. (ANI)
