JUDGEMENT

- (1.) By means of filing this petition u/s 482 Cr.P.C., the prayer has been made to quash the chargesheet no.208/05 and the order of cognizance dated 28.4.2006, passed thereupon by learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Haridwar. The said chargesheet is the result of investigation on the basis of FIR No.285 of 2005 (Crime No.258/05), pertaining to P.S. Ranipur, Haridwar.
(2.) In brief, the facts are that a first information report was lodged by respondent no.3 Ambrish Singh S/o Dharampal Singh, who is the brother of deceased Anurag Singh. The 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, when he was found bitterly perturbed. His family members persuaded to pacify him but Sri Anurag Singh, because of the ill treatment of the accused, was so desperate that he had given up his desire to live any further. Sri Singh also informed that the petitioner has made his life a hell.
(3.) On 7.10.2005, Sri Ambrish Singh (respondent no.3) got information that his brother Anurag Singh has committed suicide. He immediately rushed up to Haridwar from his native place Aligarh and came to know that some suicide note has also been left by his brother which the police has taken away.;
