Former Mr India contest winner Manoj Patil allegedly tried to commit suicide at his residence in Oshiwara on Thursday, but wasn't able to. This came days after the ex-Mr India winner submitted a letter to the Oshiwara police, demanding action against Bollywood actor Sahil Khan for allegedly defaming him on social media and purportedly creating problems in his professional life. He has allegedly levelled the same allegation in a purported suicide note.

Why did Manoj Patil try to commit suicide?

Manoj Patil's manager told PTI that they had rushed the former Mr India to Cooper Hospital after he allegedly tried to commit suicide by consuming sleeping pills at his residence in suburban Oshiwara in the wee hours on Thursday. In an alleged suicide note that has been making its rounds on social media, Manoj Patil blamed Bollywood actor Sahil Khan for allegedly harassing him. Patil's manager said they had demanded that an FIR be lodged against the actor but an official at the Oshiwara police station said no FIR has been registered so far.

Sahil Khan responded to Patil's claim and has alleged that the ex-Mr India contest winner was involved in a Steroid racket. Khan took to his Instagram and wrote that he would hold a press conference in the evening.
