A man was found hanging from a tree on the campus of Jindal Naturecare Institute in Bengaluru on Thursday morning, barely hours before Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal arrived for a 10-day visit to get treated of his chronic cough.
The investigating police officials said the man, identified as Kariyanna, was a resident of Haravanahalli, Tarikere and had come to stay with his brother at Chikkabidarakallu after a fight with his wife.
The 36-year-old, who started working as a bar bender, is said to have committed suicide out of depression, according to The Hindu.
Kejriwal arrived in Bengaluru on Thursday afternoon for his naturopathy treatment at the Jindal Naturecare located on the outskirts of the city in Tumkuru Road. The doctors at the institute started his treatment the very same day with detoxification therapy for the rejuvenation of the body.
"... once a patient comes over here, we detoxify the system. Once the toxins are eliminated from their system, the whole organs get rejuvenated and function in an efficient way," PTI quoted chief medical officer at the Institute Dr Babina Nandakumar as saying.
She added that during the 10 days of treatment, Kejriwal will be put on a strict routine so that he gets accustomed to it and is able to follow it back home as well.
"Once he is here for ten days, we will put him on a routine, so he gets used to this routine ... so whatever he learns here, he should try to inculcate (it) after getting back home if he really wants to control his disease," Nandakumar said.
His parents Geeta Devi and G.R. Kejriwal, who have accompanied him to Bengaluru, will also undergo naturopathy treatment.
