Mumbai: A man tried to kill himself by setting himself on fire outside Mantralaya on Friday afternoon. Gulab Shingari, a 50-year-old man from Beed district, was facing some land-related problems and was very upset over the dispute.
On Friday, Shingari poured kerosene over himself and tried setting himself ablaze but the policemen intervened and managed to stop him. He was later taken into custody.
Shingari claimed he decided to end his life as the 'police patil' in his village tried to usurp his land, a police official said.
