Bahawalpur resident attempts suicide


Police on Friday thwarted a suicide attempt by a resident of Bahawalpur and his family members outside the press club. Per details, Rajab and his family members tried to commit suicide as “his appeals for justice had fallen on deaf ears for the last three years”. Rajab told Pakistan Today that his stepbrothers had forcibly taken possession of his property and he had been running from pillar to post for the last three years to get justice but failed. “Committing suicide is now the last resort as there is no one to provide justice to the helpless,” he said. Meanwhile, the police took Rajab into custody and registered a case against him.
