Angered by alleged inaction of police on a cheating complaint against his brother, a daily wage earner, on Monday, made a vain attempt to set himself ablaze at the District Collector's office in nearby Tirupur.

Police said Jayaraj arrived at the Collectorate, suddenly doused kerosene over himself and tried to set himself ablaze.

However a section of the public and police personnel overpowered him and foiled his bid.

A memorandum, which Jayaraj sought to submit to the district administration, said his brother had fraudulently transferred to himself the 14 cents of land he owned and taken a loan from a bank.

Jayaraj was taken into custody for questioning, police said.
