Mumbai: A 35-year-old man allegedly committed suicide on Tuesday in Maharashtra's Beed district and his kin claimed he took the step as he wanted reservation for the Matang community, police said.

Sanjay Dnyanoba Taktode, a resident of Salegoan in Kaij, over 380 kilometres from here, allegedly jumped into a pond near the Bindusara river, an official said.

His body had been fished out and a bag containing his mobile phone, Aadhaar card and other documents was recovered from the spot, the official informed.

According to Taktode's relatives, the deceased had demanded quota for the Matang community, to which he belongs, and had written about it on Whatsapp and Facebook and also made a video clip before allegedly committing suicide, the official said.
