Man climbs pylon in Islamabad in attempt to commit suicide

ISLAMABAD: A man climbed a pylon Friday morning in what was said to be a suicide attempt after justice could not be provided to his family over his father’s murder.
According to the police, initial investigation revealed that 22-year-old Hafiz Rizwan Younas, who belongs to Bahawalpur, wanted to commit suicide as he had given up on his family’s efforts to seek justice over his father’s murder.
Younas’ father was killed in 2006 following which the Lahore High Court announced death sentence for the accused. But the latter filed an appeal in Supreme Court, ever since when his mother has been making rounds to seek justice.
However, on Friday morning Younas climbed up a pylon in Sector F-6 of the federal capital and refused to come down.
Later, rescue and police personnel present at the site convinced him to come down in a crane provided by the City District Administration.
He was then taken to the police station.
