A Ghatkopar resident attempts suicide for public toilet
| Tuesday | 25th June, 2019
A 40-year-old man, Sudam Shinde tried to commit suicide in front of the municipal commissioner's office in the BMC headquarters on Monday.
He alleged that N ward officials had declared a public toilet block 'dilapidated' within six months of construction and had illegally given permission to demolish it.
Shinde had brought with him a bottle of kerosene which he attempted to pour over himself.
Shinde said that the toilet block at Ram Joshi Marg has been built on government land and is used by 1,500 people in Ghatkopar.
"The toilet is in good condition but the local civic officers, under the influence of some builder, have put it under C1 - the most dangerous category," alleged Sudam Shinde, a Ghatkopar resident.
