deceased was an Engineer, posted in Hindustan Lever Factory
based at Roshnabad (Haridwar) and used to reside in a rented
accommodation in the close vicinity of the factory. The said
factory was being run under the supervision of its manager Sri
Praveen Pradhan (present petitioner). The petitioner forced
the deceased for some wrong doings, wherefor Sri Anurag
Singh was not prepared. On account of failure of Sri Anurag
Singh to bow down to the illegal demands of Sri Pradhan, the
latter used to insult and disgrace the deceased in front of
entire factory staff. This humiliation was brought into the
notice by Sri Anurag Singh to his family members, informing
that Sri Praveen Pradhan has severely insulted him by hurling
filthy abuses, nay he uttered that he (Anurag Singh) is a
useless person. Petitioner also spoke to Sri Anurag Singh that
"had there been any other person in his place, he would have
died by hanging himself". Lastly, Sri Anurag Singh talked to
his family members in the evening of 6.10.2005 on telephone,
