To tell some one to "Die", is abetment of suicide punishable in law


Many times employees commit suicide. They left a note mentioning that Certain person is responsible for his suicide…

That person cannot be charged for abetment of suicide unless his suicide note further says something like.. ” On such date… At such time, that person said ‘Go and die’.”.

Such specific extortion is necessary to be proved.

Exception is in marriage law. If wife commit suicide with seven years of marriage court will prima facie presume husband liable of abetting in suicide.
