Hyderabad: A businessman from the Malakpet area of the old city today tried to commit suicide by self-immolation. However, his bid to commit suicide was foiled by the security personnel deputed at the camp office. The victim has been identified as Naseeruddin, a footwear business owner said that he had no option but to commit suicide as he didn’t have money to look after him due to the ongoing lockdown.
He said that he was suffering the problems since his shop was shut down two months back due to the imposition of the lockdown. The security personnel later called upon punjagutta police and handed over the victim.
The Punjagutta police inspector confirmed that the victim had resorted to the extreme as he indeed had financial problems. Naseeruddin urged the state government to come to his rescue by extending help to him.
