A 25-year old woman was set on fire by a man for allegedly turning down his wedding proposal.

This incident took place at near victim’s home in Delhi’s Bhalswa Dairy area. The accused, Abhishek and his friends Vijay, Karan and others went there and started beating the woman’s relatives.

A relative of the victim, Gita said that whenever the girl used to go out, the boys used to harass her.

“It had been seven-ten days since they began troubling her. Still she used to ignore them. When she could not tolerate further, she told this to her brother, who asked him to stay away from her. The harassing stopped for a few days, but then it started again,” she told ANI.

“20-25 men came and started beating us with rods. Abhishek’s four-five uncles were also there and with his friends as well. Abhishek started threatening the girl but she refused to marry him. He then poured kerosene on her, set her on fire and ran away,” she added.

Gita further stated that there is no hope for the girl’s survival, as 95% of her body is burnt.

“Abhishek used to threaten her that if she doesn’t get married to him, he will set her on fire and saying that if she did not belong to him, then he would not allow her to be someone else?s. Both the brother and the sister are in pain. They (accused) should also be in agony right now so that they don’t do it again in future,” she added.

The police have arrested the three accused under Sections 307, 452, 323 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
