In a bone-chilling incident, a man from Uttar Pradesh's Shahjahanpur set himself on fire after police allegedly refused to file a complaint about the theft of his pickup van.

Akhilesh Yadav, former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and Samajwadi Party Chief, shared the video of the incident on social media on Tuesday.

Speaking to X, the SP Chief wrote, "The youth, who set himself on fire in front of the SP office due to the non-registration of a report of pickup theft in Shahjahanpur, should be provided with immediate top-notch medical facilities, and a strict case should be filed against responsible individuals for inciting suicide."

"When FIRs are so minimal, then also Uttar Pradesh's law and order appear so deteriorated in the NCRB report. If every crime is really reported, then I don't know if the so called 'Amrit Kaal' will commit suicide out of shame in Uttar Pradesh", Akhilesh said.

According to reports, victim Tahir is a resident of the Cant Thana area. His pickup truck was stolen by a thug. After that, he was making rounds from the police station to the SP office. He was continuously coming to the SP office with his family, but his pleas went unhurd.

Today, he set himself on fire outside the SP office. After this, engulfed in flames, the youth kept running inside the SP office.

In the video of the incident, kids and other family members can be heard screaming for help.

Seeing the youth burning in flames, the police officers present there somehow managed to extinguish the fire and admitted him to the medical college.
