Kanpur: A 48-year-old truck owner today allegedly attempted suicide by slitting his throat in front of the Bidhnu police station here, police said.

Sonkar's relatives alleged he was emotionally and mentally disturbed as he would then have to spend huge amounts of money to get his two trucks released, police added.
