Driver drinks poison, is now in hospital

An autorickshaw driver from Bangalore tried in vain to commit suicide in front of the office of the Superintendent of Police here on Tuesday night after his efforts to take back his wife from his in-law's place failed.

The police said that Shashidhar consumed poison. He was immediately rushed to the Chigateri General Hospital where he is stated to be out of danger.

Shashidhar married a girl from Davangere some years ago and there had been lack of understanding between the couple.

They used to quarrel with each other almost every day, it was said.
