A 50-year-old tractor driver working for the municipality in the city allegedly committed suicide in his house by hanging himself, police said today.

Nagarajan left behind a note purportedly written by him, saying he was taking the extreme step since the civic officials had demanded a bribe to release his salary arrears, the police said.

The note blamed the commissioner of the municipality Veeramuthukumar and sanitary inspector Ayappan for the death, they said.
