Reporter’s diary: Man comes to HC with poison in one hand and ‘evidence’ in other

It was a regular day at Madras High Court when a young man in his late 20s came to the press room and demanded that reporters lend him ears on the ‘injustice’ done to him.
Reporter’s diary: Man comes to HC with poison in one hand and ‘evidence’ in other


He said a woman who was in love with him for years broke up without any reason and wants the court to intervene. After a minute into the conversation, he took a break for a few seconds and came again. The mystery man, who seemed to be mentally upset, showed a pen drive and claimed that it contains explicit photos of the couple. He wants to take the ‘news’ to the world and wants justice from the court immediately. When reporters tried to pacify him, he calmly claimed that he just consumed rat poison when he excused himself earlier. Rattled media persons tried to take him to the hospital, but then the latter failed to cooperate. 
The man, who wants instant justice, started arguing with media and said, ‘You all are biased’. Reporters then alerted the police and they rushed him to the hospital in an ambulance. When everything settled down after some time, police officers were seen discussing how he got into the highly secured campus to which another police officer said that just because he had worn ‘white shirt’, no security personnel stopped him for identification.
