Saturday, 18 January 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

A case of abetment of suicide has been registered against former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi and his son Amit Jogi in Bilaspur, police said on Friday.

The case has been registered in connection with the suicide of their cook who had hanged himself in Marwahi Sadan Bilaspur on Wednesday.

“A case under Sections 306 (abatement of suicide) and 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered against Ajit and Amit Jogi. The case has been registered based on complaint filed by brother of the deceased,” Station House Officer (SHO) Kalim Khan said.

Meanwhile, Amit Jogi while expressing condolence to the bereaved family denied of any involvement of Jogi family in the case. While terming the allegations as politically motivated, junior Jogi demanded a magisterial probe or a CBI inquiry into it. He also asserted that their legal options were wide open.

Notably, the deceased Santosh Kumar Kaushik alias Manua who was a long time cook of Jogi family had reportedly hanged himself at ‘Marwahi Sadan’ on January 15.

A day later, his family members reached police    station while alleging that Jogi family had pressurized Kaushik of implicating him in a theft case due to which Kaushik hanged himself in the parking shed of Marwahi Sadan.
