28-year-old Tamil man, who attempted self-immolation allegedly over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, succumbed to his injuries today.

Vikram, battling for his life at a government hospital here after he set himself ablaze at suburban Nerkundram last evening, died this morning, police said.

Tamil Nadu has been witnessing protests by several Tamils and students demanding that Sri Lankan government be made accountable for alleged war crimes. (PTI)
