Rajkot: A man was arrested for attempting self immolation in front of commissioner's office on Saturday accusing the police of falsely implicating him in criminal cases, police said.

Dharmesh Chavda was arrested while attempting to immolate himself near police commissioner Geetha Johri's office near race course, they said.

Chavda rushed to Commissioner's office this afternoon and poured kerosene over him but was arrested before he could ignite, they said.

Police said his brother was earlier arrested on the charges of vehicle theft and Chavda was also beaten up during a rally taken out to mark Babasaheb Ambedkar's birth anniversary couple of days ago, adding that he staged the drama to put the police officers into trouble.

Chavda has been booked under relevant sections, they said.
