Man attempts suicide in court

A 32-year-old who attempted suicide in the JMFC Court here on Thursday, alleging police atrocity, could face trial for the act. Abbasali Momin, a resident of Shivaji Nagar here, consumed pesticide in an attempt to end his life. 

He was rushed to the District Hospital, where he alleged that police filed cases against him and his family members after the seizure of kerosene from his shop, located at New Gandhi Nagar. His brothers Nizamali Momin and Niyazali Momin were detained by the police and Assistant Superintendent of Police Ravi Chinnannavar had been harassing his family members, he alleged. Superintendent of Police Sandeep Patil told reporters that Momin is an accused and has been absconding in a case filed under the provisions of Essential Commodities Act. Two of his employees were arrested on February 14 and kerosene stocks were seized.

Momin should have first surrendered to the police in connection with the cases filed against him. If he had any specific complaint against any official he could have informed the higher officials. An appropriate inquiry could have been conducted. If he files a specific complaint, it could be considered, he stated.

Patil further said, JMFC-II Magistrate has filed a complaint of attempt to commit suicide in the court premises and Momin would have to face trail in that case too.  His condition is said to be stable.
