As per the Hindu report, when the security personnel present at the spot took the youth away, he was heard as shouting: "please kill me..I don't want to live now..I'm fed up with the system and this farce of the Janata Durbar".

"Only grievance letters and papers are being collected here but noone bothers to take action on them. I've been visiting here for the last two years but noone takes care of his grievances", he was quoted as saying in the daily.
