With heat on the Sri Lanka issue picking up, a 45-year-old man attempted self-immolation to press the Union government to vote against Sri Lanka United Nations Human RightsCouncil (UNHRC) for war crimes.

Police said S Mani, 45 from Nallavadu, arrived at the Cuddalore collectorate in northern Tamil Naduwith a can of kerosene. He doused himself with kerosene and set himself ablaze while raising slogansagainst the Union government for failing to protect the Sri Lankan Tamils, many of whom were killedin the civil war in the island nation.

Policemen on duty and passersby rescued him and admitted him in the Cuddalore government general hospital.

Mani is battling for life after sustaining severe burn injuries in the suicide bid.

A few members of pro-Tamil outfits and parties supporting LTTE had committed self-immolation in recent years demanding action against the SriLankan government for human rights violation during the fag end of the ethnic war between the government and the LTTE.

However, police claimed that Mani could have resorted to the extreme step because his family failed to get the Tsunami relief and rehabilitationpackage. (The Times of India)

    SHOULD HAVE LET HIM BURN, would have been 1 less Indian. How dumb to be doing this at AGE 45.. what a sorry loser.. now the tax payers of India has to foot his medical bill..

    Stupidity has NO boundaries..... may be he watched way too many tamil movies.... thinking fire will not kill him...

    The real reason he didn't get the benefit he expected from Indian government. but he claimed it is because of SL, to get public attention and finaly to get a pay cheque from Indian Gov. now SL and Geneva topic has become a good bussiness tactic for most of individuals and groups to earn some dirty dollars.. but i believe this man was eating pongel when so called tamils killed dozens of innocent civilians everyday for 20+ years.
