Vasanth, 31, jumped off a flyover and landed on the bonnet of a car, only to face a police case for his failed suicide attempt. He was apparently irked at not being able to get married.
The man suffered a fracture in his shoulder as a result of the fall and was rushed to a government hospital where he is recuperating, police told PTI.
The car's windscreen was damaged in the failed suicide bid.
Police have filed a case of attempt to suicide under the Indian Penal Code against Vasanth and a probe is on.
