Man sets himself on fire, enters Guj Chief Justice’s court
A man, dressed as an advocate, on Monday set himself on fire and barged into the court of Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy at the Gujarat high court before the lawyers doused the flames.
ACP BJ Pandya said he was identified as Kishore Agarwal, a resident of Surat. With 10-12 per cent burn injuries on the back and head, he was rushed to the Sola civil hospital for treatment, she said. The SRP constable posted outside the CJ’s courtroom had tried to stop him from entering but failed, the ACP said. Agarwal runs an NGO, ‘Noori’, in Surat, and had approached the court with a petition to quash an FIR filed against him in connection with corruption in fund allocation.
