Dear Friends
If the Charge sheet issuing authority is the offender or witness, then the charge sheet must be issued by a superior than the offender or witness (at least 1 cadre above the offender or witness involved). He cannot even involve in the office matters till the charge gets disposed off.

If the said Manager is notified as manager under the standing orders act, then he can sign the chargesheet. If in the enquiry no b ias is made out against him, there is no problem because unfortunately he himself has been manhandled, but on the safer side it is better that a superior officer issues the chargesheet
