At a medical college in Kerala's Kottayam, 20-year-old Laxmi paid a heavy price for breaking up with her boyfriend Adarsh (age 26) when he barged into a classroom, poured petrol on her and himself before setting both ablaze, resulting in the death of both as they succumbed to their injuries.
Adarsh was an ex-student of the medical college and entered the classroom on Wednesday when only a few other students were there. Laxmi ran out of the classroom screaming as soon as Adarsh took out a lighter after pouring petrol on them both, but he caught up to her to set her on fire before setting himself ablaze.

Hospitalised immediately, both died due to severe burns in the hospital. Two classmates who tried to save Laxmi also sustained burns and are being treated.
Laxmi was a student of physiotherapy at the School of Medical Education and had allegedly been in a relationship with Adarsh, and broke up with him later on.
