ELURU: A youth allegedly attempted suicide after he lost hope of getting a job in the recruitment drive held for the post of police constable.

The police, however, denied having received any complaint of such nature.

A letter despatched to newspaper offices on Monday said that timely intervention of the father helped save the youth’s life. Chaitanya, who signed the letter, said that her brother resorted to the extreme step as his wait for results of the test seemed to be unending.
