Neutron scattering studies on the gap-type Kondo system CeNiSn as well as on its reference materials CePdSn and CePtSn are reported. CeNiSn shows a Lorentzian-like broad magnetic response centered at E = 0 with an anomalous peak at about 4 meV. Well-defined crystals field excitations have been observed for CePdSn and CePtSn.
