‘A father took his life in a courtroom moments after being found guilty of assaulting his baby daughter.
Ratnasabapathy Anandakumar, 40, smuggled poison in a Coca-Cola bottle into the dock in his bag, drinking it after being convicted of brutally attacking his daughter when she was three months old.
As judge, lawyers and jurors looked on, he drank the liquid before a security guard could intervene.
He died later in hospital. It is thought to be the first time a suspect has apparently committed suicide in court.’
