A man who tried to burn a girl alive by spraying petrol on her in the Indian city of Mumbai has burnt himself to death.
According to police, the two were friends but the girl’s parents refused to have a relationship with her due to the boy’s drinking and other bad habits.
After the refusal of the parents, the girl had distanced herself from the boy. Recently, the boy reached the girl’s house to inquire about her condition and sprayed petrol on her and set her on fire.
According to police, the girl immediately grabbed the boy and forcibly hugged him, causing a fire in their clothes. When they came out of the house screaming, the neighbors put out the fire and rushed them to the hospital.
According to the report, the boy succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment at the hospital while the girl is undergoing treatment but her condition is also critical.
Police have registered a case against the boy and the case is being investigated from various angles.
