Three members of a family who had gone to police headquarters (PHQ) to complain to director general of police (DGP) about the failure of local police to recover their missing kin, attempted suicide by consuming poison, on Saturday.

This led to panic among officials present in the PHQ. The three people, including a woman, had come to the PHQ to complain about the disappearance of their kin Ramcharan. He has been missing for the last few days.

The family fears that Ramcharan has either been abducted or murdered. Upset that the police hadn't taken action on their complaint, they came to meet senior officials at the PHQ. However, one of them who had stepped into DGP Nandan Dubey's chamber, appeared to be fainting, said sources in the PHQ. Meanwhile, the two others including the woman, standing outside the chamber, also fainted. They were admitted to Hamidia Hospital. They are undergoing treatment and their condition is reported to be stable.
