Remember Rahul Agarwal suicide case from Jamshedpur? Rahul had ended life on May 05, 2022 leaving a detailed suicide video accusing his wife and in-laws of filing false 498-A case against him, his old parents which led to harassment.
The Jharkhand High Court has now granted anticipatory bail to all the five accused wife and in-laws. The anticipatory bail petition was earlier rejected in May by the Additional District and Sessions Judge.
Rahul Agrawal, was a businessman based in Rourkela, Odisha. He was married to one Varsha in 2012 and the couple has twins (one minor son and daughter).
Leaving a detailed suicide video, Rahul had accused his wife Varsha and his in-laws of implicating him in a false dowry harassment case (498-A IPC), which had caused him acute mental trauma. In his video, Rahul had elaborated on how he and his old parents had to run around courts for bail application, and that he could not take it anymore seeing his parents going through this ordeal.
Rahul sent his last video to brother Ankit Agarwal as well as to the SP City before jumping off from a building in Bistupur in Jamshedpur.
Subsequently, Rahul’s wife Varsha, her father and city businessman Pradip Chudiwala, mother Kusum Chudiwala, brother Piyush Chudiwala and sister Megha Chudiwala, were booked for torturing Agrawal which led to his suicide.
A complaint against the five accused was lodged at the Bistupur police station by brother of the deceased. In his complaint, Ankit had also accused the Sonari police station in-charge Balmukund Prasad.
