NAMAKKAL: A 55-year old man succumbed to burns at a hospital two days after he attempted self-immolation in front of the house of a local AIADMK leader here accusing her of cheating him of Rs 11 lakh.

Thangaraj died at the Government Hospital in Erode, about 50 km from here, where he was admitted after he set himself ablaze on November 18, police said.

A case has been registered against the AIADMK Namakkal women's wing secretary Kalyani for allegedly abetting the suicide after the victim gave a dying declaration before a Erode Magistrate, they said.

Police said the woman was absconding and further investigation was on.

According to the FIR, Kalyani had taken Rs.11 lakh from Thangaraj in July last year promising to get a government job for his nephew but did not honour her assurance.

Upset over this, Thangaraj allegedly doused himself with kerosene in front of Kalyani's house and set himself ablaze.
