Disabled youth tries to end life near Collectorate

NIZAMABAD: A 25-year-old handicapped youth, Uppal Kailash, of Kasabgally in the town, made a vain bid to immolate himself in front of the Collectorate here on Monday. The police who were in mufti and some Government employees foiled his attempt. Mr. Kailash, a B.Com, told reporters that he had appealed to the Chief Minister and the district Collector for several times for providing him a Government job, but to no avail. "I have assured him of financial assistance from the bank, but he is not ready to accept it,'' the Collector said and added that it was not proper to make such attempts by the unemployed youth to bring pressure on the administration.
