Last month, Voice For Men India had reported a case from Mumbai (end of the article), where a city based chartered accountant ended life at his friend’s bungalow in Igatpuri. Now incidentally, the victim’s suicide note has been recovered, which alleges harassment by police in a ‘false rape’ case.
45-year-old city-based chartered accountant (CA) Chirag Varaiya had died by suicide at a resort in Igatpuri on January 29. An FIR of rape was registered against Varaiya last month at the Bhandup police station by his former colleague.
Before Varaiya ended life, he left a four-page suicide note, alleging that he is forced to take the action because of the harassment of the police.
As per a report by Mid-Day, in his letter titled “My last letter”, Chirag wrote that his former colleague and her husband framed him in a fake case.
His reference to the police starts with “police/DCP office”, and goes on to state:
Your fake action disturbed my entire family. My family, clients, and staff, including 500 people, are dependent on me. I could have lived for 100 years, but I have to cut my life short because of your wrong and greedy action.
Adding further, the note read:
Let it be….but in future, don’t repeat this. In last few years I earned goodwill and a reputation which spoiled completely.
Superintendent of Police Sahaji Umape, Nashik Gramin, told Mid-Day,
We found a suicide note from CA Chirag Varaiya and are matching his handwriting with that in the note. He also wrote about police corruption, but did not mention any names.
In his message to the former colleague and her husband, he said,
If possible, give all the money to the investors and be good human beings.
Suicide Note: “I’m innocent…”
In the last moments of my life, I will not lie. I never touched my colleague and her entire statement is false. My last wish is to forgive all of them and give them a chance to become good human beings.
To his wife, he said,
I love my wife. Forgive me. Take care of kids Mithil and Nishka. Goodbye.
For his kids, Chirag wrote:
I am sorry and I am a bad father who didn’t complete the responsibility of father. You should now stand independent and complete the education. I am praying that one day you will grow and become a big man. Also take care of my mother.
Chirag’s brother Sanjay Varaiya told Mid-Day,
We have not seen the suicide note yet. We will go to the Igatpuri police station next week.
On January 10, the Bhandup police registered a case against Chirag and picked him up on January 26 to record his statement. The police have now taken the statements of the woman and her husband who had lodged the rape case.
The police team will also record the statements of officers from the Bhandup police station, where an FIR was registered against Varaiya last month.
Speaking with The Indian Express, an officer from the Igatpuri Police said,
No case has been registered in the matter so far, and the Igatpuri Police has taken an accidental death report (ADR) in the incident. We are in the city (Mumbai), and will go to Mulund to record the statements of the family members of the deceased.
We did not bother them any earlier. If they file a complaint, an FIR would be registered in the case.
The officer added that they will also issue summons to the woman who had registered an FIR against Varaiya to appear before the Igatpuri Police to record her statement. He said,
A rape case was registered against Varaiya by one of his former colleagues. Varaiya, meanwhile, had registered a fraud case against her. So, we will record details of the officers concerned to get some more clarity on the issue.
