A 45-year-old man consumed more than a dozen sulphate tablets and went to the Ghaziabad Senior SP’s office on Monday morning to submit an application highlighting his “innocence” in a case of theft.

As soon as Satpal told police that he has gulped down sulphate tablets,they took him to GTB Hospital in Delhi,where his condition is said to be critical.

“I have been working for the past 22 years at the clinic of Dr B D Sharma. Three days ago,a sum of Rs 5 lakh went missing and he accused me. I was harassed and wrote to the local SHO at Gandhinagar police station and the SSP,but no action was taken. Therefore I am taking this step,” the application said.

SP (City) S S Yadav said: “There is a possibility that no FIR was registered in the case. Therefore,no action was taken. If anyone is found guilty of negligence of duty,action will be taken.”
