A 48-year-old man who tried to kill himself outside the Maharashtra secretariat here by consuming some poisonous substance died during treatment at a hospital, police said on Sunday.
A police official said the deceased was identified as Subhash Jadhav, a resident of Ambegaon in the Pune district.
Jadhav had come to meet officials at the Mantralaya in south Mumbai on Friday in connection with a land dispute case but was not allowed inside as the entry is restricted due to the COVID-19 norms, he said.
Jadhav then tried to kill himself by consuming some pesticide outside the front gate of the Mantralaya.
Jadhav was rushed to state-run GT Hospital. He was declared dead on Sunday, the official said.
Prima facie, Jadhav had some criminal cases pending against him, the official added.
