Friends,
I am pasting a news piece that appeared on the Hindu's
front page on 6th August.
Arrested for attempt to commit suicide

Varanasi: Five physically-challenged traders, who
survived a mass suicide bid allegedly instigated last
week, were on Sunday arrested after registration
of a criminal case against them on the charge of
trying to commit suicide, police said. Mohammad
Naseem, Satish Seth, Bharat Lal, Khalilur Rahman and
Mohammad
Wasim were arrested on being discharged from a
hospital.

Thirteen physically-challenged traders had consumed a
poisonous substance here on July 31 in a mass suicide
bid to protest demolition of their roadside
shops in an anti-encroachment drive by the municipal
authorities recently, of whom five persons died during
treatment. — PTI
