Suicide bid over official apathy
Frustrated by official apathy, a native of Basheerabad in Vikarabad district attempted suicide by pouring kerosene on himself right in front of the Tehsil Office on Wednesday morning. Ambaji who wanted a permission to get sand to construct a house, alleged that despite several requests made even to the Sub-Collector office at Tandoor, the officials had not given him permit for sand, and he was frustrated. He brought a kerosene oil can with him to the office. His attempt was foiled by local people and the police arrived there later and took him to the police station.
