Man attempts suicide at Tehsildar office



A man, Satyanarayana, attempted suicide at Yerrupalem Tehsildar office in Kurnool district on Wednesday, but others thwarted his attempt. He along with a group of persons was staging a dharna in front of the Tehsildar office demanding eviction of encroachers from waste lands and their allotment of Dalits. As the officials did not respond to the protest, Satyanarayana doused himself in kerosene in a bid to commit suicide, but others thwarted his bid.

Tehsildar Sammi Reddy counselled Satyanarayana not to resort to such an act again.
