Abhijit Chandra Chanda, the younger son of MP from Khulna-5 Narayan Chandra Chanda, tried to kill himself by drinking toilet cleaner "Harpic" in Dumuria Upazila in Khulna on Wednesday. 

The 25-year-old was admitted at Khulna Medical College Hospital this noon in critical condition. He is now in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the hospital. 

Abhijit is serving as chairman of the Khulna Zilla Parishad panel. However, it was not immediately clear why the young man tried to take his own life by drinking Harpic.  

Doctor Khaled Mahmud, the assistant registrar of Medicine Ward of the hospital, said blood pressure of Abhijit had dropped too low. 

Meanwhile, his family has arranged to take him to Dhaka by an air ambulance as his condition deteriorated.
