- Three people died while standing in queues, three more killed themselves and one tried to set himself ablaze in Ghaziabad over the last 48 hours as frustration mounted in people unable to access their own money.
The six deaths occurred over Monday and Tuesday, three in Uttar Pradesh and one each in Bihar, Telangana and Gujarat.
In Ghaziabad, Ram Mehar Singh Yadav, a farmer who could not visit a doctor because he had no cash, tried to set himself on fire at a branch of Sahkari bank in Muradnagar on Tuesday. He was stopped by other customers who saw him dousing himself with kerosene. Bank officials exchanged his Rs 2,000 in cash and sent him home.
In Gujarat’s Surat district, Indira Modi (22) died in a private hospital on Tuesday after consuming pesticide at her residence in Varachha, in Gujarat’s Surat district, on Monday. She also administered it to her one-year-old son, but he survived and his condition is said to be improving.
Police said the woman ended her life after an argument with her husband because he could not give her more than Rs 300 for household expenses.
