A youth committed suicide at Madannapalle, of Chittoor district, for Andhra Pradesh (AP) Special Category Status (SCS). In a suicide note, the victim, a handloom weaver, said that the main reason for his committing suicide was dejection over AP not getting SCS. Police found the note, which was scribbled behind a receipt for Rs. 5,000 to an orphanage, which the victim seemed to have donated. Several political parties are organising protests at Madanapalle for sometime now, demanding SCS as their right.
