Karimnagar, Jan 6 (PTI) A woman Sunday tried to immolate herself in a police station in Telengana’s Rajanna Sircilla district after she was called there in connection with a land dispute case, an official said.

M Muthavva (35) told police about her anguish at being called to the police station and then doused herself with kerosene, the official said.

However, personnel at the police station thwarted her self-immolation bid and counselled her and let her off without charging a case, he added.

He said a local farmer, Tirupati, had filed a case against Muthavva in a land dispute and she was called as part of the probe.
