A 55-year-old man on Monday staged a suicide drama at the Vellore Collectorate by dousing himself with kerosene and demanding that the district administration retrieve 1.34 cent of panchami land in Pitchanur, which had been allegedly sold to a person belonging to a non-SC community.

However, police caught him and took away the bottle of kerosene. The incident created a flutter.

M P Anbazhagan (55) of Gudiyattam claimed that 1.34 cents of land (survey number 8/1 and 11) in Pitchanur village was classified as panchami land. He had been pleading with the revenue officials for the last 10 years to issue patta for the land on his name, but in vain. The revenue officials had issued the patta of the land to a person belonging to BC community after receiving a bribe, he alleged.

He urged Collector P Sankar to probe the matter and take action against the officials, who had allegedly manipulated the records and issued the patta of the land to the non-SC person.
