FIR will be registered and the accused will be arrested by police. Deceased suffering from schizophrenia can be a ground for getting acquittal from the court.

Risk assessment is a core skill in psychiatry. Risk prediction for suicide in schizophrenia is known to be complex.  Estimates of rates of suicide and risk factors associated with later suicide tobe identified, and the risk factors are to be grouped according to type and strength of association with suicide.
