A 25-year-old man tried to salvage his broken engagement with a woman in a filmy fashion. The man identified as Harun climbed on a 30 feet high advertising unipole on the Delhi-Saharanpur Road in Loni and threatened suicide as the kins of her ex-fiancee were opposed to the marriage.
According to police, Harun’s engagement was broken only a day before, his climbing the unipole was his desperate attempt to win back the woman. The Police termed his act akin to the ” suicide scene enacted by Viru” in bollywood blockbuster Sholay.
“I will jump off if I am not allowed to marry the girl I love’,” The man was shouting on the unipole. Initially, Police requested him to come down but he remained adamant and threatened to jump. By that time a huge crowd had gathered and resulted in a traffic jam on the road.
