A witness to the incident told the prosecutor: "The victim approached me on that day asking about the reason behind his salary deduction. I told him that he did not report to work for some time and that he should talk to the other accountant - the accused - about that matter as he was the person in-charge. They had an argument later and then the defendant pushed him, causing him to fall down."
