| Friday | 19th April, 2019
The Bombay High Court on Thursday quashed an FIR against journalist Poonam Agarwal and Kargil war veteran and ex-military man Deepchand Singh, who were booked a month after the alleged suicide of Lance Naik Roy Mathew.
Jatav’s statement further read, “The woman (Aggarwal) and Deepchand started inquiring with us as to what kind of work was done by us?
Matthew had committed suicide following the release of a “sting video” on the news website The Quint, in which he had spoken about the “sahayak system” in the Indian Army.
A note in Malayalam, which Mathew is alleged to have written, described the circumstances that made him take his life.
A case was registered after the Army submitted an application to Nashik Police complaining against the journalist for illegally entering a prohibited area.
