In fact, the Tehsildar and other officials had arrived to check the illegal kilns running in the Gahkota area. Congress leader Kamlesh Sahu dramatically poured kerosene on himself in front of the investigation team. Instead of stopping him from pouring kerosene, the people present with him continued to make videos. Then somehow Tehsildar and police stopped them.
Despite police protection, he poured kerosene on himself
The Congress leader took this step when he got police protection. Opposing the illegal kiln removal, Congress leader Kamlesh Sahu termed it as an election stunt. He said that on the request of Gopal Bhargava, the Tehsildar stopped our candidates from filing nominations. Now illegal kilns are being closed.
Now the trouble may increase
However, the shocking step taken by the Congress leader from Gahkota may add to his problems. A case of attempted suicide can be registered against them. The police can register a case under other sections including disrupting government work.
