According to the police, four complainants in a cheating case attempted suicide on Thursday by ingesting phenyl at the Gujarat high court because they appeared outraged that the court had granted the accused’s pre-arrest bail requests.
All four of them were in stable condition when they were taken to the hospital, according to a representative.
While the hearing was taking place, Shailesh Panchal (52), his wife Jayshriben (50), Hardik Patel (24), and Manoj Vaishnav (41) attempted suicide by ingesting phenyl, a poison that is dangerous to humans, within the courtroom of Justice Nirzar Desai, according to inspector Jignesh Agravat of the Sola police station.
He claimed that they had filed accusations against the general manager of Colour Mercantile Co-operative Bank and two other individuals for allegedly siphoning off loan amounts and that the court was now hearing their anticipatory bail petitions.
The defendants were previously given temporary protection from arrest by the court.
As a result of the event, Justice Desai exited the court amid a ruckus. Inspector Agravat reported that Panchal and the others were transported to a nearby public hospital by the on-duty police officers.
At the Anandnagar police station in Ahmedabad, Panchal, his wife, and the other two had filed complaints against loan consultant Chintan Shah, general manager Kinnarbhai, and manager Atul Shah for forgery, deceit, and criminal breach of trust.
The four asked the bank for loans, which were officially approved. However, according to the lawsuit, the accused allegedly stole the money by fabricating paperwork.
