TOBA TEK SINGH, Dec 3: A jobless youth who attempted to kill himself by blowing up a ‘home-made’ suicide jacket was handed over to Kamalia police by some locals on Monday.

The police registered a case against 20-year-old Shahid Imran, a resident of Eidgah locality under sections 325,285 and 286 of PPC.

According to the police, the accused after being frustrated by his prolonged joblessness decided to end his life and allegedly prepared a suicide jacket using gunpowder meant for manufacturing firecrackers.

However, his suicide bid was thwarted by some passersby when he was about to ignite the explosive material fitted in the jacket near octroi post No 6. He was later handed over to police.
