Mail News Service

Jamshedpur, Dec 7: The Jharkhand High Court has granted anticipatory bail to all the accused in the Rahul Agrawal abetment to suicide case. The five accused went to the high court after their anticipatory bail petition was rejected in May by the Additional District and Sessions Judge.

Agrawal, a businessman based in Rourkela, had jumped off a seven storied building in Bistupur in April, 2022. He had left behind suicide notes and videos, accusing his wife Varsha and in-laws of implicating him in a false dowry case and torturing him mentally. He had sent the videos to his brother and a WhatsApp message to the SP City before committing suicide.

Subsequently, along with 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 Agrawal’s brother Ankit Agrawal. In his complaint, Ankit had also accused the Sonari police station in-charge Balmukund Prasad.

Agrawal had got married to Varsha in 2012. Within months of the marriage Varsha went to live with her father and registered a complaint at the Sonari police station accusing her in-laws of demanding dowry. It was at this juncture that Agrawal had committed suicide.
