A man attempted self-immolation during a rally organised in New Delhi on Saturday by the striking medicos against the government's reservation policy.

Twenty three-year-old Rishi from East Delhi was immediately rushed to Lok Nayak Jaiprakash Narain hospital after he tried to set himself afire at the Ramlila grounds.

No immediate details about the victim were known.

Rishi received burn injuries on hand and the chest.

When asked which college he belongs to, Rishi said, "I am not a student. I am working."
