A 42-year-old man allegedly tried to commit suicide by consuming poison outside the residence of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal in the Civil Lines area on Friday morning. He was rushed to the hospital after he started frothing at the mouth and was admitted for treatment. His condition is said to be stable, police said.
Anoop Singh, who had come to meet Kejriwal at the Janta Darbar at the CM’s residence, reportedly consumed a termite-kill liquid on the way. While he was sitting at the Janta Darbar waiting to meet Kejriwal he started frothing at the mouth and fell unconscious. “He had come to the chief minister’s residence with his wife. She told us that he was upset as he had been falsely implicated in a sexual abuse case by a woman in their neighbourhood. She stated that he wanted to meet the chief minister in this regard,” police said.
A case of sexual assault was registered against Singh by a woman in southwest Delhi’s Dabri village area and he had been reportedly depressed since then.
Someone had then told him that he must approach the CM for help following which he had asked his wife to accompany him to the Janta Darbar to seek help. “While the darbar meeting was on, Singh started complaining of uneasiness and then fell unconscious. The people in the meeting rushed him to the hospital and also made a PCR call. We recovered the bottle of the termite kill from the spot. His condition is stable,” DCP, North, Madhur Verma said.
