Hubballi: On Thursday evening, a youth allegedly attempted suicide by turning the blade on himself in the police station. However, higher police officers stated they were unaware of the incident.
The alleged incident occurred at the Old Hubballi police station. According to a senior police officer, the youth, who was around 26 years old, was inebriated when he went to a hotel, had meals but refused to pay the bill and began arguing with hotel staff.
