A man allegedly attempted to immolate himself outside Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa's headquarters in Poes Garden on Monday afternoon. He began pouring kerosene on himself when police intervened and arrested him. 

Sources at the scene said the man was a former AIADMK student wing President from Trichy. Mohan had allegedly given Rs.2 lakhs to the Manaparai Cooperative society in the hopes of getting a job for his son. 

But the job was not provided as promised and the society also refused to refund the money. This had led him to attempt self-immolation to protest the failed promise of a job.
