Is it essential that a charge-sheet should contain the actual words spoken by an employee for abusing his superior?
No doubt a charge-sheet should be specific and not vague. Where in a charge-sheet it has been stated that the employee has misbehaved and abused his superior in a filthy language, though the exact words of abuses were not extracted, the nature of the word has been indicated by the word 'filthy', it can not be said that the charge is completely unspecific as to the mode, manner and contents of the misconduct.
