RAJANNA-SIRCILLA: Lokini Komala, the Sarpanch of Devunipalli village in Sultanabad mandal, attempted suicide on Tuesday. She was upset after another public representative grilled her over the Haritha Haram programme at a meeting. Humiliated, she decided to take the extreme step by consuming pesticide.

She was immediately admitted to Peddpalli government hospital, and was later moved to Karimnagar government hospital for better treatment. She was grilled at the meeting over the potential damage that thousands of devotees could cause to Haritha Haram saplings during jataras. She was asked not to take the plantation at temple premises.
