There was high drama near New Delhi railway station over the weekend after an Army man climbed a mobile tower accusing his seniors of harassing him.
Forty-year-old K. Muthu climbed the tower at Ajmeri Gate claiming that he had unresolved issues related to his job. A resident of Tamil Nadu, he told the police that he had been transferred quite frequently in the recent past and was not allowed to take any leave.
He demanded that leave be granted to him. He threatened to end his life by jumping down if his demands were not met.
A Brigadier from the Army reached the spot later and talked to Muthu over the phone. The Brigadier tried to assure him that his demands would be addressed.
This, however, failed to convince the jawan. He threw pamphlets which had details of his grievances against his seniors.
Till late at night Muthu had refused to come down. The police have deployed some personnel near the tower and a team from the fire department was also present at the spot.
