A school headmaster, who was in a state of depression and frustration, set himself ablaze inside a classroom in Bundelkhand of Uttar Pradesh state right on the day of his retirement, according to news reports.

The headmaster, identified as Om Prakash Pateriya, also wrote a suicide note on the blackboard in a classroom naming at least five persons who had harassed him by demanding bribes for signing ‘no dues certificates’ that were needed to clear his retirement papers.

Apparently, the headmaster had not been paid his salary for the last six months.
