A man allegedly tried to commit suicide inside social activist Anna Hazare’s office in Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra

A man allegedly tried to commit suicide inside social activist Anna Hazare’s office in Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra, police said on Thursday.

The man identified only as Balu consumed poisonous substance inside Hazare’s office, a police official said.

He was rushed to a hospital with the help of Parner police who have lodged a complaint, he said.

An aide to Hazare said land dispute led the man, a farmer, to take the step.

Reacting to the incident, Hazare said land dispute matters should be resolved in court and suicide wasn’t a solution.
