New Delhi, Jun 12 (UNI) Upset over his father having an illegitimate affair, a 27-year-old man set himself afire at the high security CGO Complex in south Delhi this afternoon.

Jasbir Singh Bisht later died at the Safdarjung Hospital, where he was admitted with 98 per cent burn injuries, according to the police.
