Inspector goes soft on woman despite husband’s suicide note


Here’s a cop with a difference. Mico Layout Police Inspector C N Janardhana Rao believes that the law will always support a woman, no matter what. He told the victim’s family who went to lodge a complaint that he would book even a dog if a woman files a complaint against it.

Ashish and Ruchi got married in April 2009 but when Ruchi learnt about Ashish’s premarital affair, it became a source of constant friction between them

No wonder he refused to take up a suo motu case of abetment of suicide against Ruchi Goel, wife of Ashish Goel, a senior software engineer with Trainz Consulting who recently killed himself, despite his leaving behind a note that clearly implicated his wife in his death. “Our laws always favour a woman victim and not a male victim,” Rao said.

Ashish hanged himself at his BTM Layout house on June 23. He left a suicide note stating that he took the step because his wife had threatened him with a dowry harassment case if he did not pay her Rs 1 crore. When Mico Layout police refused to register a case, Ashish’s family leveraged some powerful political contacts in Delhi. The police finally registered a case on June 30. Rao confirmed this. “I was compelled to register a case against the girl because of pressure from Goel’s family,” he said.

Rao’s boss, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South East) B N S Reddy, however, has a different take on the matter. “There is no difference between a man or woman in the eyes of the law. If my officer has taken a contrary stand, it is wrong and he needs to be corrected. I will direct him to speed up the investigation,’’ he said.

Ashish and Ruchi got married in April 2009. She hailed from Meerut while he came from neighbouring Aligarh. Apparently, Ashish had an affair with another girl before he married Ruchi. After Ruchi learnt about it, the issue became a source of constant friction between the couple. Three months after their marriage, she went back to her parents’ home. After a while, Ashish brought her back to Bangalore.

But the fights continued and in April this year Ashish, according to his family, was pressured to try and find a job in Meerut. On June 20, he got a call from Ruchi in which she reportedly demanded Rs 1 crore in a week’s time, failing which she threatened to file a dowry harassment case against him and his family. This apparently acted as the trigger for Ashish to kill himself.

    make the lady suffer as same, like when same thing could have happened to a wife and husband must have been detained in dark jails and his family. Y didnt police now took extreme steps to arrest those involved in this case. y not the other party is behind the bars, and others r running pillar to pillar for their bail??? at least boy’s spirit should get justice by atleast putting the lady behind bars !!! y is she roaming free beacuse he is no more and she is a women,,, then how can these women say that Womens r equal to Men???

    put this woman in jail and let her wait for bail as a man would. then dont allow her to inherit anything this man has left. this may teach her that life and marriages cannot be lead by threats.

    I wish he didn’t kill himself. I wish he researched on the net ( he being a IT man himself) to find out if there are more like him facing the same problem. Then he would have definitely not taken his life as he would have found innumerable men who are bravely facing the killer woman/wife, illegal and biased laws daily in their life.

    I wish he was not shy of discussing his problem with his friends and colleagues, then he would have sure not killed himself because he would have been surprised to find that there are many who are sailing in the same boat.

    May God rest his soul in peace.
    May God punish the woman in the same coin.

    The real reason of Ashish Goel Suicide is another woman seema Mittal from Aligarh UP.
    She had proposed me also for marriage and later abused us.

    I am safe now… May God bless and help other men from being victim of such women and punish the criminals.
