    DMK cadre ends life over party's poll debacle

    Erode: Unable to bear DMK's rout in the Tamil Nadu Assembly polls, a 49-year-old party cadre allegedly committed suicide in Sathyamangalam in the district, police said on Sunday.

    Dhanabal doused himself with petrol and set himself ablaze in his house in Govindarajapuram on Saturday night, they said, adding that he suffered serious burns and died on way to hospital.

    Dhanabal had been upset since Friday after the DMK suffered one of its worst poll reversals winning only 23 seats in the 234-member assembly, they added.
