Mr. Moxit Shah,
Here it is not a case of departmental inquiry, but a criminal case registered with police against a Central Government employee for which he can be prosecuted through a court of law, not through departmental inquiry. Of course, even departmental inquiry can also be set up against him, if the offence attracts violation of departmental conduct rules meant to be observed by the employees.
Even about suspension in case of a departmental inquiry, your information is wrong, so far as Central Government employee is concerned. A Central Government employee is suspended for any grave irregularity well before the conduct of a departmental inquiry against him and some times even before taking up preliminary investigation before issue of charge sheet, so that he may not try to destroy the sensitive documentalry evidence or to influence the witnesses.
