Raipur (Chhattisgarh), July 27 (ANI): The man, who attempted to commit suicide by immolating himself outside Chief Minister Ra man Singh's house earlier on July 21, died this morning.

Singh had earlier on Friday said that his government would bear the entire expense of the treatment of the youth named Yogesh Kumar Sahu.

"Yesterday (Thursday) a youth, Yogesh, tried to commit suicide. He attempted suicide outside the CM House after meeting and handing over his application to the MLAs and 'jan pratinidhis' (people's representatives)," Singh said after meeting the victim, a resident of Raipur's Urla area.

"Today, I met him at Kalra Nursing Home and took stock of his health from the doctors. I also spoke to him personally and assured his family members that the government would bear the entire cost of his treatment, and they will also be provided with financial help." (ANI)
