Hyderabad: Allegedly angered by officials apathy to his application seeking pension under a government scheme for handicapped, a 48-year-old man slashed his own tongue at Telangana secretariat on Tuesday evening.

Raja Chary, who had applied for pension went to B Block at the secretariat around 4 pm and after coming out, he took out a blade and suddenly slashed his tongue, Saifabad Police Station Inspector K Poorna Chander said.

"His tongue has not been cut-off...his tongue has suffered injuries resulting in bleeding. The security personnel immediately shifted him to a nearby hospital and his condition is out of danger," Chander said.
