Banahatti, Mar 18: A former member of the Town Municipal Council (TMC) tried to immolate himself demanding taluk status for Terdal here on Friday.
Members of Terdal Taluk Action Committee had organised a protest in Terdal.
While submitting a memorandum to the tahsildar, Subhash Rayannavar, a former TMC member, doused himself in kerosene and tried to set himself ablaze, shouting slogans. Police and other protesters snatched the kerosene can and prevented Subhash from taking the extreme step.
