AMRAVATHI: A youth who set himself on fire in front of the police station in the name of a dispute with his wife is being treated for serious burns. The shocking incident happened at Chandragiri police station in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. Manikanta from Vijayawada set himself on fire. The reason cited for the suicide attempt was that the policemen threatened Manikanta to implicate him in a false case when he came to the station to file a complaint.

It was a dispute with his second wife that led Manikanda to take the drastic step. Manikandan was staying in Hyderabad for work with his second wife Durga, a native of Tiruttani in Tamil Nadu. After three months of marriage, there were cracks in their relationship and Durga moved to Kurnool. It was here that Durga met Sonu and started living with him. Later they moved to Bhakarapet.


Knowing that Durga was having an affair with another person, Manikandan tried to bring back his wife several times but she did not relent. She informed Manikanta that she will live only with Sonu. Meanwhile, Manikantha learnt that Pragadala Srinivas, a constable of Chandragiri station, is supporting Durga and Sonu's relationship. Following this, he reached the police station yesterday morning.


There was a heated argument between the constable and Manikanta. He later went to the next station, brought petrol and set himself on fire in front of the station. The people who were there and the police extinguished the fire and took Manikanta to the hospital. He suffered serious burns.
