Case filed against former CM after domestic help commits suicide

Monday, January 20, 2020 • Tamil Comments

Following the suicide of their domestic help in Bilaspur, former Chattisgarh CM Ajit Jogi and his son Amit Jogi have reportedly been booked by the police in a case of abetment of suicide.

The deceased man, identified as Santosh Kaushik, was found dead at their residence on Wednesday. He had been working for the former CM as domestic help for the last few years and was apparently accused of robbery inside the bungalow, Marwahi Sadan, recently. The brother of the deceased man filed a complaint against Ajit Jogi and Amit Jogi, claiming that their baseless accusation led to his brother's suicide.

Amit Jogi, however, has denied the charges, stating, "Our full sympathy is with the aggrieved family. The Jogi family has nothing to do with this unfortunate incident. As the FIR lodged late last night at the behest of the ruling party smacks of political vendetta, we support demand for an investigation by a judicial magistrate. We will also be seeking appropriate judicial remedy."

A case has been registered under Section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code and an investigation is currently underway.
