Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

A doctor at the state-run Gandhi hospital here on Tuesday attempted to set himself afire after disciplinary action was taken on him for alleged misconduct with colleagues at a meeting, police said.

The doctor had some bottles filled with inflammable substance stuffed inside his shirt and tried to start the fire with a lighter, they said.

Soon, firemen and policemen at the scene foiled the immolation bid, the police said adding that they were mulling whether a case should be registered against him.
