A 31-year-old man set himself on fire today as he was troubled by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s health condition.
Sargunam later claimed that he was extremely depressed about Jayalalithaa still being in the hospital. The chief minister was admitted to Apollo hospital on September, 22. Periodical health bulletins have been released by the hospital which served as the only way of knowing about her health.
On Wednesday afternoon, Sargunam poured petrol and set himself on fire in front of Tambaram Sanitorium in Chennai. The cops who were on patrol tried to put the fire off but Sargunam tried to evade them. He was seen yelling, “There is no news about Amma’s health. She should get well soon.” Cops finally manged to handle him and put out the fire. Sargunam was immediately rushed to the hospital.
