SALEPUR: An accused lodged in Niali police station attempted suicide in the lock-up on Monday.

Niali police station IIC Saroj Kanta Behera said the accused, Bichitra Parida alias Bapi, tore a blanket provided to him inside the lock-up and made a rope out of it. He tried to hang himself from the grill gate of the lock-up at about 3 pm when most of the staff had gone out for lunch.

A constable heard his moaning and rushed to rescue Bapi. The accused was taken to Niali Community   Health Centre and later shifted to SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack.

Police said Bapi of Balilanji village under Madhaba gram panchayat was picked up on Monday from Chandramauli Tota area on charges of snatching of `3.85 lakh from employees of Riverside Utility Private Limited (RUPL) at gun-point on November 18.
