Gurunath was diagnosed with diabetes and he was admitted to hospital in Bengaluru only two days ago. Apparently, depressed over his condition, Gurunath took the extreme step. According to sources, he was to be discharged today. Tilak Nagar police have rushed to the spot and have booked a case. Gurunath had served in H D Deve Gowda’s Cabinet in 1994.
