He has been admitted to a private hospital in Delhi, where his condition is stated to be critical. A suicide note has been recovered from him.

“Farmers from various states have been camping at the Delhi border for nearly two months now, but the Central Government is not paying any heed to our plight. Hence, I am killing myself," Jai Bhawan had reportedly told the media immediately after consuming poison.
