A final year ITI student was taken into custody after he made an attempt to commit self immolation near the district collectorate, demanding the Centre’s intervention to stop the ongoing war in Sri Lanka.

Sathyamurthy came to the collectorate around noon on Saturday and started shouting slogans against Sri Lankan army and Tamil Nadu and Central governments, police sources said.

Suddenly he took out a can containing petrol and tried to pour it on himself. However, the police personnel guarding the collectorate rushed to the spot and caught the youth, they said.
