Protesting against former CM Jayalalithaa being denied a bail, veteran Tamil actress Maya and her daughter Gunapriya tried to set themselves ablaze.
Both Maya and Gunapriya came to the Chennai city police commissioner's office at Vepery here on Wednesday with a kerosene can. They tried to douse themselves with kerosene and tried to set themselves ablaze.
The Vepery police took Maya into custody and questioned her. Maya, who acted in MGR starrer Amarakaviyam, said: "I have decided to end my and my daughter's lives for the sake of Jayalalithaa."
