The rope was tightly fastened to the hook.All the circumstances gave the impression that it was not a case of suicide.Still the police did not register the FIR even though the 164 Cr.P.C statement of mother reveals the cognizable offence.The photographs which the Complaint has taken enough proof of the manner of death. On the contrary the police ridiculed and threatened the complainant away,when they approached for filing FIR. Complainant even sent their written complaint to SHO, ACP and DCP concerned but there was no reply on the part of the investigating officers.

That finally the complainant approached the trial court u/S156(3) for the registration of the FIR. Only after seven months of the incident FIR got registered U/S 306 IPC, since the death was happened beyond seven years time.But the investigative officers’ lackadaisical attitude was very clear.
