New Delhi, Aug 29 (IANS) A 60-year-old man, tortured by his daughter-in-law, attempted suicide inside a police station here Thursday when policemen cold-shouldered his complaint.

Rajbeer Singh consumed a poisonous substance inside west Delhi's Kanjhawala police station premises after police personnel did not pay heed to his complaint against his daughter-in-law.

Singh was rushed to a hospital where his condition was stated to be out of danger.

A police officer said Rajbeer had approached the police station a day ago and informed that his daughter-in-law had thrown him out of his house after usurping his property.

However, the policemen sent him home, telling him to come if his daughter-in-law did not mend her ways.

According to sources, Rajbeer arrived at the police station today (Thursday) but, once again, the policemen turned a deaf ear to his pleas. Frustrated, he then consumed the poisonous substance.
