A man tried to attempt self-immolation during a rally organised in Delhi on Saturday by the striking medicos against the government's reservation policy.

Twentythree-year-old Rishi from East Delhi was immediately rushed to Lok Nayak Jaiprakash hospital after he tried to set himself afire at the Ramlila grounds.

No immediate details about the victim were known.

Rishi received burn injuries on hand and the chest and was admitted to Lok Nayak Jayprakash Narain Hospital.
 
When asked which college he belongs to, Rishi said "I am not a student. I am working."
