Based on the suicide note revelation, Jaripatka PSI Bakal booked the three accused under Section 306 for abetting Amardeepsingh’s suicide and investigating the case further.
Dubious police working and goof-up:
The irresponsible and negligent working style of city police came to fore when the press release sent by them goofed-up the entire incident. The police release mentioned Amardeepsingh’s wife Nikki committed suicide. Based on the police information, Nagpur Today published the news on January 5 with title “Under stress, 40-year old woman ends life in Jaripatka, 3 accused arrested.”
The senior police officials should ensure that the press release or information provided to media contain correct facts.
