Bhubaneswar: Amid tight security during the Budget Session of the Odisha Assembly, a woman allegedly attempted self-immolation near the State legislature for alleged police inaction in connection to the death of her son here on Thursday.

As per reports, the woman, who hails from Kujang block of Jagatsinghpur district, poured patrol on her and attempted to set her-self on fire in front of the Jayadev Bhawan near the State Assembly .

While being taken to custody, the woman said her son was allegedly burnt to death at a wine shop in 2016 and complained of police inaction in his son’s death case due to the pressure of local BJD leaders.

Notably, this is the second suicide attempt played out near the State Assembly in the last 24 hours.
