New Delhi, (Agencies): 26/11 Mumbai attack martyr Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan's uncle succumbed to his burn injuries on Friday night. He had attempted self immolation protesting against government's alleged indifference in taking care of the victims of the 26/11 attack, police said on Saturday.

56-year-old K Mohanan had suffered 98 per cent burn injuries and took his last breath at 11:55 PM on Friday at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital here.

He had also suffered a heart attack while undergoing the treatment.

Mohanan, an inhabitant of Kozhikode in Kerala, had poured kerosene and set himself on fire outside Gate No 4 of Parliament House near Vijay Chowk on Thursday.

Mohanan had told doctors that he was dejected at the way the victims of the Mumbai attacks were being treated by the government.

"He was disturbed at the death of Sandeep. He wanted to feel the pain Sandeep might have suffered when he was shot at by the terrorists," the official said.

Mohanan, the younger brother of Sandeep's father, had told his family that he was leaving for Ernakulam but instead left for the national capital, he said.

Sandeep's father K Unnikrishnan had said, "We are happy with the way the government has treated our son. We have no grievances. Mohanan was very fond of Sandeep. We thought that he had overcome the grief but ended up doing this".
