He was taken to the quarantine centre set up in a school after he somehow managed to reach home in Kumrauli village from Delhi on 10 April.

"He committed suicide in a room of a middle school which has been converted to a quarantine centre in Kumrauli," District Magistrate Thyagrajan SM said.

Prima facie, the man was under stress because of his disease, tuberculosis, and some family problems, the DM said.

A statement issued by the district administration said he was kept separately in a room at the quarantine centre, where he was provided with food and medicine.

He hanged himself from a window grill with a gamchha (traditional cotton towel).

As he was worried about his disease, doctors who had examined Yadav at the time of his entry to the centre, later counselled him.
