I have a case of a widow filed in AFT, wherein her husband was found drowned in static Water Tank within work premises. He had responsibilities for maintaining it as this tank was used for Fire purpose. Deceased was also responsible for maintaing a garden drawing water from that tank.
After his death, a court of inquiry was held and decalared him to have committed suicide. However there was
1. No suicide note
2. No Family problem.
3. No financial problem.
4. No medical problem.
5. No mental distress as per wife. ( A copy of COI is still awaited from the Dept.)
6. P.M report says death due to drowning. No visible sign of scar/wounds.
Kindly refer few case laws wherein authorities have declared as suicide but ultimately resulted in Accident/Murder.
