The Chennai city police on Monday reached out to an unemployed man in distress due to the ongoing lockdown and provided him with food and assured help after he expressed fears that he might be driven to attempt suicide.




The man, a driver by profession, had approached the city police through e-mail, telling them he had no job due to the lockdown and that he faced eviction from his rented accommodation.

The man was provided food and also counselled by the police team, which assured to do its best to help him travel to his village.
