Dinesh DivekarDear ,
There are three conditions under which assets get deteriorated. One is normal wear and tear, second is accidental damage and third is negligence of the custodian. I recommend you conducting enquiry and finding out whether the asset deterioration was due to negligence. If yes, then you may impose the penalty against the defaulting employee. While imposing penalty, make sure than you take into account the depreciation of the asset's economic value.
By the way, do you have sound policy on allotment of company's assets? If not, then you may take help of my following reply:
Secondly, earlier there was extensive discussion on missing of the laptop. You may click the following link to refer it:
